Trans. Devon. Assoc., 1901, Vol. XXXIII, pp.39-67.

by

Sir Roper Lethbridge

Prepared by Michael Steer

The author was an academic and initially a civil servant in India, later a Conservative Party politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1885 to 1892. This address on the History and Distribution of Devonshire Families in the Colonies and America, entitled "Hands across the sea" is a pot pourri of Devon family surnames and was presented at the Association’s July-August 1901 meeting at Exeter. Commencing his presentation the President “ventured to hope it may be thought appropriate in this year, when the death of the well-beloved Queen to whom we owe the consolidation of our empire, and the stress of the great war in South Africa, have combined to knit together with our hearts, the hearts of all our kith and kin in every quarter of the globe.
