Prepared by Michael Steer

The article was read at the Association’s July 1896 Ashburton meeting. In this paper, its author has collected a series of miscellaneous notices of deeds and wills, as well as similar documents relating to Devonshire that had not previously been published. With two exceptions the content chiefly relates to Ashburton, Widecombe, and Buckfastleigh. His intent was to produce a compendium of scarce information that would interest Association members who were local historians. The article, from a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal can be downloaded from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
