Legends of Devon

By L.A. Westcott

London, Exeter & Dawlish, (1848) 120 pp.

Index prepared by Michael Steer

This small, entertaining book seems to have been produced for circulation among a small intimate group of friends. It is a product of the later years of the English Romantic movement. Beside the introduction and terminal address to Luscombe (in verse), it contains the legends of - The Parson and Clerk Rocks; Bradley's Height; Blue Bird of Horna Wood ; The Man who Maltreated a Ghost, or the Legend of Littleham; Linton Castle; Kent's Cavern; Berry Pomeroy; and Babbicombe Bay. In a book like this, perhaps, the reader should not look for historical accuracy, nor etymological accuracy. The full text is available at https://books.google.co.uk/ with a search by either title or author. The original from which this surname index is made, is held at the Bodleian Library.
