THE Kent Historical Society was founded in 1912 among other objects for the purpose of "diffusing information relative to the history of the County and of the Dominion, and in general encouraging and developing, within the County, the study of history."

During the decade from 1914 to 1924 six volumes of addresses and papers were printed, the first four volumes now being somewhat rare. One complete set of the volumes is preserved in the Reference Division of the Chatham Public Library.

Another generation is now occupying the centre of the educational stage and it is the object of this volume to reach this younger generation with such of the history of this district as has found its way into print with the approval of local historians.

The necessity for abridging some of the valued papers of the Society is to be regretted, but it has been done to obviate the outlay requisite to have the papers reprinted in full, and to bring the volume to a more assimilable length.

The endeavour has been made to preserve all historical facts contained in the papers and in most cases the original sequence of the paper has been preserved. The papers are arranged in chronological order.

Only papers of a general historical nature have been included in this volume, which is a summary of the work to date. It is not all the history of the County, and future contributions will be published when the Society has them available.

This volume is published through the generosity of J. W. Mustard, Esq., B.A., M.B., F.A.G.S., Honorary President of the Kent Historical Society, without whose guidance and financial assistance this work would not have been attempted.

Kent Historical Society.

Chatham, Ontario,
March, 1939.
