OF LINCOLN'S INN, BARRISTER AT LAW.
J. AND W. T. CLARKE,
PORTUGAL STREET, LINCOLN'S INN.
As the office of Churchwarden has increased with the recent division of parishes into ecclesiastical districts, and with the numerous churches built in and about the metropolis; and as the sphere of their duty is enlarged with the increased population of parishes, and become more complicated from numerous Acts of Parliament, imposing duties or conferring powers on them, the Editor hopes that the annexed Treatise will prove not altogether useless in the hands of those whom duty or inclination may induce to become acquainted with the subject. His principal object has been to embrace the most
recent decisions of the ecclesiastical courts and
courts of common law, upon questions affecting
the subject of which he professes to treat, and to extract such parts of them as shall enable the reader to judge for himself, without a reference to the books in question.
