The Parish Register of Ashburton and Buckland in the Moor

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 28 (1896) pp. 238-243.


W.M. Birch

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Parish Church of Ashburton, dedicated to St. Andrew, is situated in West Street, just a short walk from the centre of the town. The earliest known records of the Church date back to the 12th Century when Bishop John the Chanter of Exeter (1186-91) gave it to the Chapter of Exeter Cathedral. Copies of St Peter's Buckland Brewer registers (christenings 1692-1860, marriages 1694-1837, and burials 1728-1860) are held at the Devon Record Office, while transcripts of the Parish Registers back to 1756 are held in a special collection in the Westcountry Studies Library. 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. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the New York Public Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
