Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 30, (1898), pp. 117-126.


Frances B. Troup

Prepared by Michael Steer

Honiton is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Honetone, meaning a farm belonging to Huna. It became an important market town, known for its lace making, skills introduced by Flemish immigrants in the Elizabethan era. In the 17th century thousands of people produced lace by hand in their homes, and later in the 19th century Queen Victoria had her wedding dress made of Honiton lace. The town also became known for its pottery. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
