Hertfordshire Published by Author 1993 0952184508 / 9780952184508 1st Edition Softcover 
Small Quarto Size [approx 17.5cm x 24cm]. Very Good condition. Illustrated with Black & White Photographs and Maps. Signed by author. Gift inscription to prelims. 198 pages George Jarvis was born in 1704 at The Green, Staunton-on-Wye. He walked, so the story goes, to London with the cattle drovers at the age of 13, becoming an apprentice in the currier business. He went on to make a fortune 'as a Currier and Leather Cutter', but, despite being married three times, had only one surviving daughter. Families, even then, fell out, and so did George and Mary. The consequence of this was that he left a fortune of £30,000 upon Trust - 'The Trustees were given instructions to pay and apply the yearly interest, dividends and produce of said Securities into and among such number of the poor inhabitants of the Parishes of Staunton-on-Wye, Bredwardine and Letton…in such proportions and either in money, provision, physic or clothes as they shall think fit for the better support and maintenance of such poor inhabitants, allocating an £11,000 part to Staunton-on-Wye, a £13,000 part to Bredwardine and a £6,000 part to Letton.' ID291572
