Licensed Victuallers 1651-1671

The following are transcriptions of the approval of Licensed Victuallers (Publicans), recorded under Quarter Sessions.

These are for the north-west area of Devon, and cover the years 1651, 1660, 1663, 1664 and 1671.

The name of the person requesting a License is recorded, together with the person(s) who agreed to stand as Surety for their keeping an orderly house.

The documents are housed in Devon Record Office (see reference number against each year).  Surviving documents generally start from 1728, but these documents are rare surviving ones from the 17th century.
