The Cistercian Houses of Devon: Introductory - 1. Buckland.

Trans. Devon Assoc. vol. 7 (1875), pp. 329-366.

by

J. Brooking Rowe

Prepared by Michael Steer

Rowe's paper, delivered at the Association's July 1875 Torrington meeting is an introduction to his series on Cistercian Houses in Devon. The first of these, Buckland Abbey was founded in 1278 by Amicia, Countess of Devon and was a daughter house of Quarr Abbey. It remained an abbey until the Dissolution of the Monasteries. In 1541 Henry VIII sold Buckland to Sir Richard Grenville. His grandson Richard converted the abbey into a residence and eventually sold it to Drake in 1581. Drake lived in the house for 15 years, as did many of his collateral descendants until 1946, when it was sold to Arthur Rodd, who presented the property to the National Trust in 1948. 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. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. This rare book was produced from a copy held by the New York Public Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
