The paper, read at the Association's July 1882 Crediton meeting addresses the life of its author's uncle. The Rev. Samuel Rowe was vicar of Holy Cross Church, Crediton from 1835 until his death in September 1853. He is best known for his many and varied writings and in particular for his book 'A Perambulation of Dartmoor' first published in 1848. He is buried in the west end of the churchyard where his tomb is currently in a poor state of repair. In 2012, funds were being raised to repair the tomb.
