Okehampton beginnings

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 27, (1895) pp.93-112.


R.N. Worth

Prepared by Michael Steer

Okehampton was the caput, or headquarters, of a large feudal barony held at the time of the Domesday Book by Baldwin FitzGilbert. It was then held by the heiress Maud d'Avranches until her death in 1173. It then passed to her daughter Hawise de Curci (died 1219) who married Reginald de Courtenay of the French House of Courtenay. The Courtenay family rebuilt Okehampton Castle, until King Henry VIII seized the lands and had Henry Courtenay, 1st Marquess of Exeter executed for treason in 1539.
