This paper, read at the Association's July 1883 meeting at Exmouth, presents interesting information on the lives of a number of remarkable Devonians, all of whom attained lives of over 100 years duration, and several, for example Mrs Anstice Steer of Roborough, who were believed, or reported to have attained as many as 120 to 140 years of age.
