Speculum Gregis
Or "An account of all the inhabitants of the Parish of Croydon in the County of Cambridgeshire commencing from 1 January 1843" by the Rev Francis Fulford (Rector at Croydon 1841-1845). Not exactly Arrington (I concede) but an absolute gem, nevertheless. The Rev Fulford went on to become the Bishop of Montreal in Canada.
