Mr. John Roberts CHANTER, of Barnstaple, devoted much time and attention to the study of Devonshire literature, and contributed several valuable papers thereon to the Transactions of the Devonshire Association. The author was a friend and colleague of Barnstaple poet and philanthropist William Frederick Rock, and together in 1845 founded Barnstaple's Literary and Scientific Institute of which Chanter was its first Secretary.
