Rector of Teigngrace, the Rev. Gilbert Yarde, on 24th May, 1783, aged 70, was robbed and barbarously murdered at Whiteway, near Lindridge wood, with a holly bludgeon, by John Greenslade, his servant, who was hung for it on Haldon and his body given for dissection. Apparently, Rev. Yarde had sacked Greenslade, his gardener, who then asked for a reference. Yarde had written in Latin "Gone from me and fit for no man". Discovering the trick when unable to get another job, Greenslade took his revenge. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
