Notes on Prince's Lives of Sir William Pole and Thomas Risdon
Trans. Devon Assoc., Vol. 18, (1886), pp. 261-268.
Prepared by Michael Steer
This paper, described by Willcocks as a "treatise de minimis" was read at the Association's July 1886 St Marychurch meeting. It follows its author's paper entitled Devonshire men at the Inner Temple, 1547-1560, read at the Association's previous meeting. When preparing the list of names to be incorporated into the earlier paper, Rev Willcocks was struck by inconsistencies in the admission dates to the Inner Temple of those named Pole and Risdon that had been assigned them by Prince and other writers on the history and celebrities of Devon. This present paper corrects the inaccuracies. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
