A tangle in the history of Ashburton

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 28 (1896) pp. 219-227.


P.F.S. Amery

Prepared by Michael Steer

Ashburton was by far the smallest and probably also the poorest of the parliamentary boroughs of Devon. It sent representatives to only two Parliaments before the 17th century: those of 1295 and 1407. However, the situation improved after the Long Parliament of 1640. Pearson's paper presents a detailed account of the town's representation from that date. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries.

This rare book was produced from a copy held by the New York Public Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
