The birthplace of Sir Walter Ralegh

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 21 (1889), map, illus. pp. 312-330.


T.N. Brushfield

Prepared by Michael Steer

Dr Brushfield's lavishly illustrated paper focuses on the minor controversy surrounding Sir Walter's birthplace and describes the house at Hayes in detail. It is a typical Devon farmhouse of the 14-1500's, built in 1484, or possibly earlier, and is constructed using cob walls on a stone foundation. Sir Walter Raleigh's father was tenant there and a Church Warden at East Budleigh where the family crest on the bench end and his step-mother's tomb can still be seen. In those days, there was a busy harbour in the valley where doubtless Walter spent many hours listening to sailors' tales.
