Fox hunting has taken place in the UK for almost 700 years. The first accurately recorded fox hunt -- during which a farmer in Norfolk used his dogs to chase down a fox suspected of killing some of his livestock -- was in 1534. There are references to hunting foxes in England dating as far back as AD43. The author's name, a pseudonym derives from the legend of Gelert, Prince Llewellyn's faithful hunting dog. The book is a compendium, presented by county, of most of the Hunts in England and Wales. This index presents only those surnames found in the sections on Devonshire. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy in the Bodleian Library collection and can be downloaded from Google Books.
