Denham Jordan was a house painter by trade, and prolific writer of books and articles. He was born in Milton Regis in Kent, and moved to Dorking as a teenager where he spent the rest of his life. Milton Regis "Some of our readers and critics have complained that the localities amongst which "A Son of the Marshes" was brought up, and where his observations in natural history were first made, are too vaguely indicated in the books already published. To meet this objection I have, in editing the present volume, added a few topographical details which will, I trust, serve to give more definiteness to the scenes therein described". "Milton-next-Sittingbourne, the centre about which these Marshland incidents are grouped, has played no mean part in the history of our country". This is Jordan's only book in which he gives the real names of places. Milton-next-Sittingbourne is an alternative name for Milton Regis. Chapters include: Ranging the dykes; Old guns and their owners; Old Reeks and his luggage; Under stress of circumstance; Some water studies; Nature's raiders; A water raider; In Sussex; Upland fields; Some traits of wild life; The pageantry of Autumn; Common land; At dawn of day; Voices of the night; As the seasons change.
