Excerpt from Winchester Cathedral: Its Monuments and Memorials

I desire to acknowledge, with much gratitude, the help that has been given me in my somewhat formidable under taking. I doubt indeed if I should ever have completed it, had it not been for the assistance and interest of my friend, the late Francis Joseph Baigent - to whose memory I dedicate this volume - who was ever ready to place at my disposal his vast stores of antiquarian learning. The chapters that deal with the pre-reformation monuments owe a great deal to his knowledge and criticism. Among other friends, from whom I have received exceptional help, I would specially mention Mr. Herbert Chitty of Winchester College, who most generously handed over to me a collection of MS notes which he had made on persons whose names occur in the Burial Register of Win chester Cathedral. These notes have proved most valuable, and have saved me much arduous research. To the Rev. Dr. Furneaux, lately Dean of Winchester, I offer my grateful thanks for much scholarly assistance; and also to my brother, Matthew Vaughan, late Assistant Master of Haileybury. I would also acknowledge the help that I received, especially in matters of heraldry, from the late Mr. Norman C. H. Nisbett, Architectural Surveyor of the Cathedral. Nor would I forget my friend, Mr. Herbert E. Johnson, Proprietor of the Hampshire Chronicle, who kindly allowed me to search the early numbers of his excellent journal.
