News from the West, 1643-1646

Trans. Devon. Assoc. Vol 21 (1889) pp. 210-227.


R. Burnard

Prepared by Michael Steer

The West of England played an important part in the Civil War. This paper, delivered at the Association's 1889 Tavistock meeting focuses on newspaper reports of the period. These are generally highly coloured and devised to support the cause espoused by their author's. They are generally comprised of a mixture of "virulent abuse and unworthy accusation". A majority focus on the progress made by both sides in Devon and Cornwall, particularly with the defence of Plymouth.
