Excerpt from Lincoln
The Diocesan History of Lincoln was entrusted some years ago by the Society to the late Canon Venables. Having many literary tasks on hand, Canon Venables was not able to devote much time to this history, and during the years that the matter was in his hands it advanced no further than the end of the life of Bishop Robert de Chesney, a.d. 1167. After the Canon's lamented death the Society en trusted the completion of the work to me, and I have now performed it to the best of my ability. The por tion written by Canon Venables has been very slightly abbreviated, but scarce any alterations have been made in his statements. For the latter portion of the work I am greatly indebted to the assistance of Canon Overton.
