On Some Ancient Documents Relating to Crediton Minster

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 10, (1878), illus., pp. 237-254.


James Bridge Davidson

Prepared by Michael Steer

This paper, presented at the Association's July 1878 Paignton meeting relates to early Crediton Church history. It focusses on five very ancient deeds. These generally relate to the property or rights of the Minster, and all form part of a 21 document roll from Crediton held in the British Museum (Cotton II, 11). The paper deals with the contents of the first five documents in the roll. These are first presented in Anglo Saxon and Latin, followed by abstracts in English. Only names taken from the English abstracts are indexed. 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 University of California Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
