The Editors would, as before, call attention to the references to the
Cherry MSS. or Cherry "Bercheriensis Prosapiae," which is a collection of
notes relating to Berkshire families from various sources, in three manuscript
volumes which were arranged for publication in 1851 by the Rev. Henry
Curtis Cherry, M.A., rector of Burghfield, but never printed. The volumes
are now in the possession of the proprietor of the Victoria History of the
Counties of England.
