The deed of foundation of the Church House, Exbourne

Trans. Devon. Assoc. 1:5, (1900) pp. 145-149.


J.H. Radford

Prepared by Michael Steer

Exbourne was historically, part of Black Torrington Hundred. Its church (St. Mary) is built of granite and is mainly c.1500 in date. Its chief interest now lies in the rood-screen, which is of an interesting early type, well designed with good detail. The screen is probably c. 1420-30 in date. This paper presents and briefly discusses an indenture by which William Chudleigh conveyed the Church House to trustees in the reign of Henry VII (1507).
