"The study of our early ecclesiastical history has by some been considered one of great labour ; but a little work, entitled Chronicles of the Ancient British Church,' has so collected the material from the many and various sources, and has so judiciously classified and condensed the records, that there is no longer this plea. We recommend the work not only to every student, but to every churchman who feels an interest in the early history of his church."- Literary Churchman, June 16, 1855.
"An excellent manual, containing a large amount of information on a subject little
known, and still lese understood. We recommend the volume to those who wish to know what were the religious institutions and advantages of our remote ancestors." - Clerical Journal, August 22, 1855. London : W. MACINTOSH & Co., 24, Paternoster Row, E.C., and

“The Romance which Mr. Thoms has dissected with ruthlese thoroughness."-Saturday Reriew.
"Mr. Thoms, the able Editor of that successful little farrago of learning, oddities, absurdities, and shrewdnesses, Notes and Queries, perhaps the one weekly newspaper which will be consulted three hundred years hence, luas been trying very hard to get at the truth of the Hannah Lightfoot story. It is nearly impossible to prove & negative, and quite impossible to prove a negative about the secret history of Courts; but Mr. Thoms has certainly succeeded in raising a violent presumption that the story is a delusion, probably based on some intrigue carried on by one of the Royal Family.'
Spectator, June 22. " A neat little volume, in which the tale of Hannah Lightfoot and George the Third are scattered to the winds. ... Mr. Thoms hus in fifty pages-readable and well worth reading-corrected the credali ties of a century's gossip, and contributed some very important historical facts." -Birmingham Journal.
