Second Report of the Committee on Devonshire Records: Harding MSS, etc.

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 22 (1890), pp. 59-65.


J.R. Chanter (ed.)

Prepared by Michael Steer

The report, read at the Association's 1890 Barnstaple meeting focuses on an eclectic mixture of documents including manuscripts and books on matters relating to Devon from three sources: (1) the collection of the late Lt Col William Harding deposited in the North Devon Athenaeum at Barnstaple, (2) a portion of the MS collection of the late David Thomas Powell, deposited in the British Museum, and (3)notes on some missing Devonshire MSS by Mr R W Cotton and Mr J Brooking Rowe, FSA . The purpose of the Committee was to investigate and report on manuscripts, records and ancient documents existing in or related to Devonshire, with the nature of their contents, their localities and whether or not they are in private or public hands.
