Notes Genealogical and Historical, Being a Second Essay Towards a History of Bideford

Trans. Devon Assoc. vol. 16 (1884), pp. 670-702.

by

C. Worthy

Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper, presented at the Association's July 1884 Newton Abbot meeting provides an account of the origin, rise and progress of Bideford as an ancient municipal borough and port town. Some of the content is based on Watkins (1792) An Essay towards the History of Bideford. A particular focus of Worthy's paper is the at times, tortuous relationship between the Grenville family and the people of Bideford. There is as well, an entertaining passage (pp. 696-8) describing an assault on the Mayor by the Vicar of Bideford during an evening service in the Church. The author, who was eldest son of the Vicar of Ashburton was born in 1840 and has been nominated a Devonshire Poet.
