Summary

Reverend Peter Hampson Ditchfield (1854-1930) was the author of Our English Villages (1889), Old English Sports (1891), Books Fatal to Their Authors (1895), Old English Customs Extant at the Present Time (1896), English Villages (1901/06), The Parish Clerk (1907), Memorials of Old London (2v/1908), and Vanishing England (1910). "IN the old life of rural England few things are more interesting than the ancient sports and pastimes, the strange superstitions, and curious customs which existed in the times of our forefathers. We remember that our land once rejoiced in the name of "Merry England," and perhaps feel some regret that many of the outward signs of happiness have passed away from us, and that in striving to become a great and prosperous nation, we have ceased to be a genial, contented, and happy one. In these days new manners are ever pushing out the old. .."
