On the Original Map of the Royal Forest of Dartmoor, Illustrating the Perambulation of Henry III, 1240

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 5, (1872) pp. 510-548.


C. Spence Bate

Prepared by Michael Steer

In 1240 King Henry III ordered by a writ dated the 13th of June that the lands of his brother Richard of Cornwall should be confirmed by a boundary perambulation. The lands in question were the Forest of Dartmoor and the Manor of Lydford that he had granted to Richard in 1239. It was decreed that the Sheriff of Devon and 12 "lawful knights of the country" should undertake the mission. This paper, presented at the Association's July 1872 Exeter meeting focusses on the map that recorded the event.
