I CLAIM for myself little, or no originality, in the following pages. Through the kindness of my friends I have been supplied with ample materials on which to enlarge, so that I might have filled a volume; but that was not my object in compiling this condensed History of Rudston. Having last year written an article in the “Bridlington - Quay Observer," it was suggested to me by many of my friends, that if I were to “enlarge upon it a little” it would form a useful and interesting “pamphlet” to the many visitors, who, during the summer season, visit this locality. Falling in with the idea, I have thus ventured to fulfill their desire, in the hope that my efforts may not be altogether futile.
My best thanks, I offer, as they are due, to the gentlemen named on the following page, who have materially aided my design, and assisted in correcting this pamphlet
for the press.
