Notes on the Ancient Parish of Brixham, Devon, and on some of its Ancient People

Trans. Devon Assoc., Vol. 18, (1886), pp. 197-214.


P. Varwell

Prepared by Michael Steer


Brixham was called Briseham in the Domesday Book. Its population then was 39. It was part of the former Haytor Hundred with a population of 3,671 in 1801, and 8,092 in 1901. In 1334, the town's value was assessed at one pound, twelve shillings and eightpence; by 1524, the valuation had risen to £24 and sixteen shillings. It is recorded as a borough from 1536, and a market is recorded from 1822. William Prince of Orange (afterwards King William III) landed there with his mainly Dutch army, on 5 November 1688 during the Glorious Revolution, and issued his famous declaration "The Liberties of England and The Protestant Religion I Will Maintain". Many local people still have Dutch surnames, being direct descendants of soldiers in that army. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries.
