Opis: The Place Names of Middlesex - Gover J. E. B.

Excerpt from The Place Names of Middlesex: Including Those Parts of the County of London Formerly Contained Within the Boundaries of the Old County

As a student of place name etymology, I have been struck by the fact that, whereas many of our northern and midland counties have been ably dealt with by competent hands, the southern counties, especially those in the vicinity of London, have for the most part been left untouched. It is for this reason that I have undertaken the present work. I selected Middlesex for my subject - first, because it is a small county, and an investigation into the sources of its names could be accomplished in a shorter time than would be possible with one of the other home counties; and secondly, because it contains the greatest city in the world, and in consequence might invoke more general interest than would be the case with any ordinary county.

I take the opportunity of thanking Professor Mawer of Liverpool University for valuable help and advice on the subject which he has given me both personally and through the medium of his recent article on English Place Name Study printed by the British Academy, and which has lessened my diffidence in offering this work to the public. I also desire to acknowledge my indebtedness to my father, Mr. J. M. Gover, K. C., for assistance in revising proofs and otherwise.
