John Earle

Prepared by Michael Steer

The documents from which names have been extracted have been taken from a roll in the British Museum marked Cotton Roll ii, 11. The roll is nearly five feet long and contains 21 documents all relating to Crediton. The documents presented by Earle in this handbook are the first five on the roll. The documents appear first in Anglo Saxon, then with translations provided by Mr Davidson. These latter appeared in the 1878 Devonshire Association Transactions. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally by Google from a copy in the New York Public Library collection and can be downloaded from HathiTrust. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
