At some time before the Norman Conquest, central Dartmoor became a royal hunting ground. It was known as the Forest of Dartmoor. In medieval times the word 'forest' was associated with a designated area of land in which the king had the right to hunt deer. The Forest was owned from 1239 by the Earls, later Dukes, of Cornwall and was traditionally used by farmers (paying a rent) to graze their animals in the summer. The records in this paper commence at 1224 and continue to the late 17th century. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
