Lady Howard of Fitzford

Trans. Devon. Assoc. Vol 22. (1890), illus. pp. 66-110.

by

G.H. Radford

Prepared by Michael Steer

Legend asserts that Lady Mary Howard of Fitzford is sentenced to spend eternity doing penance for her 'evil deeds'. Her penance is to journey in a coach made from the bones of her husbands and driven by a headless driver, from Fitzford House to Okehampton Castle accompanied by a huge black dog with blood red eyes and savage fangs. On reaching the castle, the dog plucks a blade of grass and carries it back to Fitzford House, where it is laid upon a granite slab. Only once the grass has been completely removed at the castle will Lady Howard be released from her penance and allowed to rest in peace.
