Milles' Parochial Collections for Devon

Devon & Cornwall Notes & Queries 11, (1920-21), pp. 320-324.



Prepared by Michael Steer

The Note relates to a paper presented at the Devonshire Association's July 1903, Sidmouth meeting, and refers to a MSS record of Dr Milles, Dean of Exeter's 1754-5 survey of Devonshire's clergy, from a copy lodged with the Bodleian Library. The Dean sent every parochial clergyman in the county a list of 100 questions. Only about a quarter of those contacted responded. He had intended to use the information from his survey in a History of Devon, which alas was never completed. The Note provides examples of some humorous responses.
