Prepared by Michael Steer

The manor of Dunkeswell was known to the Saxons as Doduchewell. It was held by Henry Fitzwilliam and was mortgaged by him to a Jew called Amadio. It was redeemed by William Lord Brewer, a favourite of Richard I.; and was made the site of a Cistercian monastery founded by Lord Brewer in 1201, and vested with the profits of Dunkeswell parish church by the Bishop of Exeter, nephew of Lord Brewer, in 1242. The monastery was valued at the dissolution at £294, and was given in 1539 to Lord Russell. The paper also provides an Appendix listing the Abbots from 1228 to 1539.
