Marlow Residents in History - 10 articles of research by Hugh Grice

The articles below were written by Hugh Grice and preserved for posterity on a CD, as per his Author's Postscript reproduced below:






The articles on this compact disc have resulted from work conducted over the years of my retirement, and I wish to vouch for the considerable pleasure the work has given me as an amateur researcher. Each was like doing a jigsaw where every added piece enlarged the picture, yet in no case could it ever be said to be complete : more information always seemed to be needed, though often it was out of reach. As a consequence, it is highly probable that others may come along and be able to add to the detail, and I hope that this may be so.

I should therefore like to make a plea to all those who share an interest in local history, and that is to make a record of what they know of it and add to the common stock of knowledge. In my view it would be sad if important information were to be lost through inactivity, and its availability would undoubtedly give much satisfaction to those who sought it.
