The paper was delivered at the Association’s July 1890 Barnstaple meeting. The author’s purpose was to address the diversity and variability of the industrial occupations of North Devon inhabitants during the preceding five centuries. His objective was to illustrate that there is a continuity in the strong manufacturing bent of the people, and to indicate the nature of many contemporary major industries existing in North Devon.
