Présentation de l'éditeur

Members of the Win. Salt Society for introducing into their Proceedings a history of my own family; my excuse for doiug so, is the destruction of the Wrottesley muniments by the fire of December 1897, and the fact that the history being a reprint from the pages of The Genealogist, will not throw an undue burden upoo the finances of the Society. After the loss of the family papers in 1897, I proposed to my friend Mr. Harwood, the Editor of The Genealogist, that he should print the copies which I had taken of the Wrottesley deeds in that magazine. To this he replied that he would much prefer a history of the family, introducing the deeds into it, and the following pages are the result of this suggestion. Up to the date of the fire, the deeds at Wrottesley had been unusually well preserved. When I first began to examine them in 1860, there was a complete series of family documents identifying the successive owners of the property from the reign of Henry II down to the above date. All the most important of these as far down as the Tudor era, have been incorporated into the history in their original form. For the encouragement, however, of archaeologists who have to deal with the history of an ancient family which has lost its muniments, I may mention that every step of the pedigree from the reign of Henry II to the present time is proved by public documentary evidence which is accessible to all the world. This evidence will be found given in detail in the text of the history. It illustrates the value of the Public Records for the elucidation of local and family history, and the mine of wealth which lies under our feet, which has passed almost unnoticed before the rise of the modern school of archeology.
