In the 16th century Bideford was Britain's third largest port. It was rumoured that Sir Walter Raleigh landed the first shipment of tobacco there, although this is a myth. The Bideford witch trial in 1682 involved three women, Temperance Lloyd, Mary Trembles and Susannah Edwards, accused of witchcraft and resulted in one of the last hangings for witchcraft in England. Many believe that they were the last in England to hang for witchcraft but there were several after them Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
