The history of the island of Antigua

My original intention had been to limit this Work to two volumes, but owing to the great
increase of material, and a desire not to omit anything which might be useful, I have been
compelled to issue this Third and final Volume.

I wish to point out that owing to the shortness of my stay at Antigua in 1888-9, it was
impossible for me to examine many of the later volumes of records — a matter for regret,
as otherwise many pedigrees might huve been more fully set out. In regard to marriage
licences, which were formerly invariably granted by the Governor or his Deputy, present
officials have no knowledge of their existence.

My thanks are due to the Publishers for the very able way in which they have carried out
their difficult and troublesome work.
