Parish’s Edition of the Domesday Book


Parish appears to have enjoyed editing the Sussex Domesday Book. ThisLetter from Parish¬†letter to a friend, enclosing a copy of the book, gives an indication of Parish’s sense of humour. It reads:

My dear Pennant

I have great pleasure in sending you by parcel post a copy of (Sussex) Domesday book –

It would be affectation to deny that I received valuable assistance in the Compilation thereof from the old friend of our schooldays W. Conqueror.

Yours sincerely

W D Parish
