The following Records are in addition to those contained in Volumes I and II. They are mostly abstracted from the Quarter Sessions Order and Indictment Books and the County Council Minute Books, now preserved in the County Muniment Room at the Town Hall of Kendal, and the Browne Manuscripts in the possession of Miss Browne of Town End, Troutbeck.

These latter manuscripts, consisting of some sixteen volumes, form a mass of local information of extraordinary worth concerning the latter portion of the 17th and early portion of the 18th centuries. For want of space it has been possible only to extract such items as deal with the highways and county bridges.
