chester with the “ Dorset County Chronicle and Somersetshire Gazette,” which continued nearly fourteen years. Of his publications the main portion of his early and extensive contributions to periodical literature appeared in the “Monthly Magazine" and “The Universal Magazine.” In 1805 he edited “A Concise History of the Present State of the Commerce of Great Britain,” from the German of Dr. Rheinhard; with notes and additions, 8vo. In 1808–9 he published, in parts (sixteen in all, forming three volumes, and part of a fourth), “The Librarian: containing an Account of scarce, valuable, and useful Books, Manuscripts, Libraries, Public Records,” &c. In 1811, “An Account of the London Daily Newspapers: to which is added, a Plan for the Management of a Weekly Provincial Paper.” He also published a volume of “Memorabilia" (8vo. pp. 328) being historical, biographical, and antiquarian recollections, compiled from various sources, and from his extensive course of reading. In 1812, “Observations on the Varieties of Architecture, and in the Structure of Parish Churches: to which is added, a Description of the Characteristics of the Saxons, Normans, and Pointedarch Styles; list of Churches now remaining, built by the Saxons; an Account of Bishops and others who were Architects; and the Contemporary Architecture of the various Periods.” (8vo. pp. 77.) In topography his first work was “The History of Howden Church,” printed whilst in business at that place, in 1799. In 1805 he published “The History of the Castle and Parish of Wressle, in the East Riding of the county of York” (8vo. pp. 94); but his chief works were “The History of Taunton,” (8vo. 1822, pp. 608.) purporting to be a new edition of Toulmin's, but so remodelled and containing so much new matter as to merit all the credit of a new work: and the “History of the Hundred of Carhampton” (8vo. 1830, pp. 662). This was issued as an instalment towards a history of the County of Somer
set, proposed in a prospectus put forth by
Mr. Savage (see Gent. Mag. Vol. XCVI. ii. 158), but which, however, did not extend further. His last publication of any extent was “The History of Dorchester" (12mo. pp. 220), which appeared in 1832.
The pieces of a more fugitive character put forth by Mr. Savage during a long literary life have been very numerous; and happily he was one who, at the last moment of life, could look back upon all he had written, and wish none blotted out on account of any immoral or irreligious
tendency. He was universally esteemed, not only for his attainments, but also for his amiable qualities of head and heart, the social virtues, high sense of integrity, and kindness of disposition; the full amount of which can only be appreciated by those who had daily and hourly opportunities of familiar and friendly intercourse with him. During his residence in Lon. don he had formed an extensive acquaintance amongst literary men ; and in his old age the fund of anecdotes relating to them, with which his retentive memory was well’ stored, rendered him an amusing and instructive companion. In politics he was of staunch Tory principles, but tolerant of those who differed from him in opinion. In religion he was a sincere and devout Protestant Churchman. Destitute of all pharisaical assumption, he was pious without ostentation. It was his wish, often expressed to the writer of this memoir, that it might be recorded of him that he died in firm reliance upon “Christ and Him crucified;" and those were the last words that escaped his lips in the awful hour of dissolution.
