The Forest of Dartmoor and its Borders:

An Historical Sketch

by

Richard John King

London: John Russell Smith, 36 Soho Square Plymouth: Roger Lidstone, George Lane South, 1856

Index prepared by Michael Steer

At some time before the Norman Conquest, central Dartmoor became a royal hunting ground. It was known as the Forest of Dartmoor. In medieval times the word 'forest' was associated with a designated area of land in which the king had the right to hunt deer. The Forest was owned from 1239 by the Earls, later Dukes, of Cornwall and was traditionally used by farmers (paying a rent) to graze their animals in the summer. An original copy of the text is held at the Oxford University Library. It was digitised 13 March, 2007 and can be downloaded via the search engine at: https://books.google.com/ Google, in partnership with a number of public libraries has sought to make more widely accessible, old, hard-to-get books on which copyright has expired.
