"This work was begun by Mr. Lascelles in 1813, under the direction of the Irish Record Commissioners who selected him to continue the work started by B.T. Duhigg from the manuscript collection formed by J. Lodge from the patent and close rolls. In consequence of a disagreement with the commissioners, Mr. Lascelles returned to England, and in 1822, agreed to continue the work, independent of the Irish Record Commission. The work was printed under the immediate authority of the Treasury in two folio volumes, dated respectively 1824 and 1830. A history of Ireland, entitled: Res gestæ Anglorum in Hibernia, written by Lascelles and prefixed to the volumes on his own authority was objected to and the work was suppressed. In 1852 the volumes were reissued with an introduction, entitled "Observations showing the origin of the work, and the cause of its being published in its present imperfect state," by F. Thomas, of the Public Record Office.
