Shepherd of Watton Court, Honiton and Lawell


A.J.P. Skinner

Prepared by Michael Steer

Watton, since renamed Waddeton Court is a large country house, near the site of an earlier house, in landscaped gardens overlooking the River Dart. It was built in 1829 with a mid-19th century extension at the rear, and in Tudor style. Skinner's Notes (353 & 354) provide data on its earlier occupants extracted from the parish registers. A Shepherd of Honiton pedigree is included, as well as a copy of James Sheppard the elder's will, and information about the Shepherd monument in the parish church. The church was destroyed by fire in 1911. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. The copy of this rare book is held in the collection of Albert William Bryant Messenger, and is available from the Internet Archive.
