    Notes 
    • Reading, a borough and market town, having separate jurisdiction, locally in the hundred of Reading, of Berks, 26 miles south southeast of Abingdon, and 39 southwest of London, on the road to Bath, lies less than 4 mi. from Beenham (See Also Parishes within 10 miles of Beenham). "In the beginning of the reign of Charles I., the courts of Chancery, King's Bench, and Common Pleas, with the court of Exchequer, and the courts of Wards and Liveries, were held at Reading, in Michaelmas term, in the year 1625, and again in 1635, in consequence of the prevalence of the plague, which was then raging in the metropolis, and a commission under the great seal, for putting in force the laws against the Popish recusants, was read in the courts here. At the commencement of the parliamentary war in this reign, the town was garrisoned for the parliament, but was abandoned by the governor on the approach of the royal forces in 1642; after which it was held by the King's troops, till taken for the parliament by the Earl of Essex, in the following year, after a siege of eight days. After the battle of Newbury, Essex marched to Reading, where he remained for two days; on his departure, it was again garrisoned for the King, who, on his visit in 1644, ordered the military works which had been erected, to be demolished: there are still many extensive remains of the outworks in the Forbury. The inhabitants suffered severely from the contributions levied by both parties, who had alternate possession of the town. In 1688, some Irish and Scottish troops belonging to the army of James ll. were posted at Reading, from which they fled on the approach of the Dutch troops under the Prince of Orange; but returning soon after, a skirmish took place in the town, in which the only officer in the prince's army who lost his life in the expedition, was killed: the anniversary of this battle, which was called "Reading Fight, " was annually commemorated till about the year 1788, when it was discontinued. The town comprises the parishes of St Giles, St Lawrence, and St Mary's, in the archdeaconry of Berks, and diocese of Salisbury. The living of St Giles' is a vicarage. in the patronage of the Crown. The living of St Lawrence's is a vicarage. in the patronage of the President and Fellows of St John's College, Oxford. : The living of St Mary's is a vicarage. in the patronage of the Crown.
