The Chronicles of Twyford, however, are not a mere supplement bringing down the narrative of events to the current year. The accounts both of Martin Dunsford and Harding have been amplified in many important details: and the whole has been re-written. The original bye-laws of the town, and the other documents copied in the appendices, have never before been printed; and a number of other sources have been drawn upon to impart variety to the contents, as well as to supply accurate information on points in which the inhabitants of Tiverton may be supposed to be interested.
The title Chronicles of Twyford is not without precedent Sixty years ago, when it was the fashion in country towns to write squibs, a number of lea?ets appeared in Tiverton, entitled The First Chapter of the Chronicles of Twyford, The Real Chronicles of Twyford, etc. This circumstance, and the fact that the word Chronicles has come through association to express something less formal than history, suggested the name of the present volume.
