Two Ashburton Scholars

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 8 (1876), pp. 526-546.



Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper, delivered at the Association's July 1876 meeting presents potted biographies of two of Ashburton's famous sons. John Ireland, Dean of Westminster Abbey held the crowns for George 1V and Edward IV at their coronations. He is buried in Poet's Corner. Ireland was educated at Ashburton Grammar School under Rev Thomas Smerden, and later at Oxford. He aquired a house in Ashburton for the masters of the school. Also a pupil of the school at that time was Wills the famous explorer in Australia, and William Gifford who became editor of the famous Quarterly magazine, Gifford is buried with John Ireland in the Abbey. There still exists a Scholarship at Oxford University named after John Ireland. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
