Published in the Reign of George III

From New and Correct English Atlas

The significance of some towns being underlined in red is given by the previous owner of the atlas John Hobson Matthews by means of a manuscript note in red ink he has added at the start of the atlas. He says

"The places underlined in red ink are those in which a Catholic mission has been established between the era of the Reformation and the year 1840"

John Hobson Matthews (1858 - 1914) Born in Croydon in 1858. Educated at schools at Blackheath and Cambridge. Worked for a shipping firm in Malta. A good linguist he was a Roman Catholic historian, archivist and solicitor. You will find more details about him here in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography.
