Sir William Searle Holdsworth was professor of constitutional law at University College, London (1903–8). After 1922 he was Vinerian professor of English law at Oxford. Holdsworth's greatest achievement is his History of English Law in 17 Volumes.

Sir William Holdsworth's monumental legal history extends from AngloSaxon times to the nineteenth-century Judicature Acts. It was interrupted by his death in 1945, when he had reached Volume 12.

Subsequent volumes have been edited by Professors A. L. Goodhart and H. G. Hanbury, at first from Holdsworth's type-script and later, with more difficulty, from his manuscript notes.

Volume 10 starts Part I of Book V The Centuries of Settlement and Reform covering the period 1701-1875 and dealing with sources and general development, and the state of public law throughout these years.
