The Hundred of Lifton in the time of Testa de Nevil, AD 1243

Trans. Devon. Assoc., vol. 46, (1914) pp. pp.185-219.


Oswald J. Reichel

Prepared by Michael Steer

Lifton is one of the earliest villages in West Devon to be founded by the Saxons, and was first recorded as Liwtune in King Alfred's will (abt 880 A.D.). It was of considerable strategic importance being close to the River Tamar and the Cornish border. In the 10th century it gave its name to the 'Lifton Hundred', an administrative division of Devon that encompassed many neighbouring villages. The Hundred remained in existence until the 19th century. The Testa de Nevill, is a listing of feudal landholdings or "fees/fiefs", compiled in about 1302, but from earlier records, for the use of the English Exchequer.
