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). "A remarkable feature in the conduct of our modern ecclesiastical services is the disappearance and painless extinction of the old parish clerk who figured so prominently in the old-fashioned ritual dear to the hearts of our forefathers. The Oxford Movement has much to answer for! People who have scarcely passed the rubicon of middle life can recall the curious scene which greeted their eyes each Sunday morning when life was young, and perhaps retain a tenderness for old abuses, and, like George Eliot, have a lingering liking for nasal clerks and top-booted clerics, and sigh for the departed shades of vulgar errors."
