The author, Sir Frederick Pedler, has traced his line of Pedlers to the holder of a tenure in Devon in 1205. To take his male line back to the early 16th century in St Breoke in Cornwall was comparatively easy. Use of tax registers and manorial records took him a step further to James Pedler (or Peddeler), a husbandman of Launcells who received a pardon from Henry VIII in 1509, and the methodology he employed to trace the next three centuries will intrigue most family history enthusiasts as well as other Pedlers.

In his interestingly written and well-references account of his researches and results the author has not confined himself to the male line. He has also followed up many related families, particularly the families of Colebrook in Sussex, to 1508; Angelly (sometimes Engelyss) in Cornwall, to 1525; and the family of Dogo back to 1544. The author has also investigated and produced significant information on the families of Carling and Rock in Bedfordshire; Angelly, Bawden, Brown, Cann, Cowling, Dagg, Dogo, Henwood, Hicks, Illery, Kellow, Mann, Mapowder, Oliver, Pitt, Potter, Slogget, Spettigue, Sweet, Taylder, Vercoe, Wade, Williams and Years in Cornwall; Pedeleure in Devon; Johnson in Durham; Brown and Cunningham in Lincolnshire; Carling and Mee in Nottinghamshire; Dale, Evans, Holder, Jones and May in Radnor and Herefordshire; Colebrook in Surrey; Colebrook, Dearling, Drew and Wisdom in Sussex; and Simpson in Yorkshire.

It will be obvious that this very full account of one Pedler family includes a vast amount  of information of value to those interested in other families. The book is not a mere string of names, however, but a lively story of ordinary people through eight centuries - yeomen, blacksmiths, weavers, tanners, butchers, ironmongers, inn-keepers, chairmakers, frame-knitters and a president of the Wesleyan Conference. The Pedlers who played a part in the history of Methodism and Congregationalism sent missionaries abroad and there are chapters in the book devoted to emigrant Pedlers and Colebrooks who took those names to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States.

This account of one enthusiastic family historian's researches, his approach and his results, will fascinate many among the growing numbers engaged in a similar pursuit, as well as local historians in the counties concerned.
