A forgotten episode in Devon county history

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 34, (1902), pp. 394-402.


J. Erskine-Risk

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Dowrish family were landed-gentry settled from very early times at Dowrich near Sandford. They were connected by marriage to several aristocratic families, but by the 1700's had lost most of their estate, which had eventually reverted in part to the Crown. There was much discussion in eighteenth century Devon about whether or not any descendants of the Dowrish family would lay claim to their ancient estates. This paper reveals some of the intricacies of the litigation generated by family claims. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
