President’s Address

Trans. Devon. Assoc., vol. XXIII (1891), map, pp. 25-101.

by

R.N. Worth Esq., F.G.S.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Devonshire Association’s Presidential Address was presented at its July 1891 Tiverton meeting. It focused, in the words of President Worth, on “one of the most obscure epochs of Devonian life - the period of Roman occupation. In delivering it the author attempted to distinguish between “what is really known and what is merely inferred - between the statements of authorities, who are few; and the words of speculators, who are many”. Geologist and Historian of the City of Plymouth Richard Nicholls Worth, the Association President for 1891 was the father of Richard Hansford Worth who followed in his father's footsteps becoming a renowned literary authority on Dartmoor. President Worth’s obituary is available in GENUKI. The Presidential Address, from a copy of a rare journal can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
