Prepared by Michael Steer

The Paper was presented at the Association’s July 1896 Ashburton meeting. It has for the genealogist, a wealth of names and associated with the early records of our county’s unique history. The present paper, as a continuation of its predecessor, focuses on the history of Briefs, with special reference to those collected in or for the county of Devon, from the close of the Commonwealth period to 1828, when they were abolished by Statute. The paper has been organized under the following headings: (1) General history, illustrated by collections made in Devonshire of Briefs unconnected with it. (2). Collections of Briefs directly connected with the county. (3). Alphabetical list of Briefs collected in the parish of East Budleigh. The author, Thomas Nadauld Brushfield (1828–1910) was an alienist (early psychiatrist), and antiquarian. On his retirement he settled at Budleigh Salterton, and made a study of Raleigh’s life his main focus. He became a member of the Devonshire Association in 1882, was elected to its council in 1883, and was president in 1893–4. There is an excellent biography with portrait in Wikipedia.
