The Customs of the Manor of Braunton

Trans. Devon Assoc. vol. 20 (1888), pp. 254-303.

by

R. Dymond

Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper, delivered at the Association's 1888 Exeter meeting examines the court rolls that together constitute the "Book of the Customs" that in 1516 the Abbot of Cleve in Somerset required William Wyott of Braunton to compile. The three manors that were his focus were Braunton Abbott, Braunton Gorges and Braunton Dean. The book took seven years to compile and was revised periodically by the Abbot and Sir Thomas Colmer, Vicar of Braunton. Its contents provide insights into the customs that governed the proceedings of Devonshire manors in Tudor times.
