Four Tavistock Worthies of the Seventeenth Century: John Maynard, William Browne, Thomas Larkham, Richard Peeke

Trans. Devon. Assoc. Vol 21. (1889). pp. 138-147.


D.P. Alford

Prepared by Michael Steer

The author in a paper read at the Association's 1889 Tavistock meeting, asserts that in the 17th century, Tavistock "did not lag behind its neighbours" as the birthplace of talented men, since besides Sir Francis Drake, John Pym and Lord William Russell, it could boast of at least four others; an eminent lawyer and politician, an able divine, its true poet and its fighting hero. In Alford's words "Let these worthies march past for our inspection". Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
