Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 10, (1878) pp. 315-329.


Paul Q. Karkeek

Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper, delivered at the Association's July 1878 Paignton meeting presents the contents of the Roberts family's general notebook. The Roberts' lived on a farm named Town Living in Stockleigh Pomeroy and appear to have been well-to-do yeomen. Their memorandum book contains records of such public events as came within the writer's notice, as well as entries that throw light on the manner of life in rural Devon during the reigns of James I and Charles I.
