Index prepared by Michael Steer

The Forest of Dartmoor is an ancient royal forest covering part of Dartmoor. A royal forest was an area reserved by the king for hunting. William the Conqueror introduced the concept of forest law in England in the 11th century. Until 1204 the whole of Devon was a royal forest, until King John agreed (subject to the payment by the county's commonality of a "fine" of 5,000 marks) to disafforest all of Devon. Devon except for Dartmoor and Exmoor was freed from forest law. This disafforestation was confirmed by King Henry III in 1217, and in 1239 he granted the Forest of Dartmoor (and the Manor of Lydford) to his brother, Richard, Earl of Cornwall. From that date it technically became a chase, not a forest, though the name did not change. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy held in the Bodleian Library collection that can be downloaded from https://books.google.co.uk/books, with a search by either author or title. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
