Trans. Devon. Assoc., vol. 43, (1911) pp. 237-255.

Prepared by Michael Steer

This inventory was produced in connection with Commissions appointed in 1552 (6 Edward VI). Four Commissioners were appointed for Devon to make inventories of all church plate, bells and vestments, so that after leaving the barest essentials for use in divine services, whatever else was of value; censers, incense boats, chalices, crosses, pyxes, embroidered vestments, and those of cloth of gold, were removed and assigned "to the King's use". Surviving Devon records are apparently meagre compared to those of other counties. 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 Princeton University Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
