The following references have been extracted, unchanged, from Bannister's book, and are therefore reproduced as if from his text.

List of Books most commonly quoted or referred to in the following pages.

This list is not an exhaustive bibliography of the subject, but contains merely the titles of the works which I have consulted most frequently in compiling the Alphabetical List of Herefordshire Place-names, and my abbreviations of them. For the forms of words later than 1538 (Val. Eccles.) I have only consulted, as a rule, Saxton's (1577), Speed's (1611), and Taylor's (1789) Maps of the County.
