Charter of Tavistock

Trans. Devon. Assoc., vol. 46, (1914) pp. pp.176-184.


Radford, Mrs. G.H.

Prepared by Michael Steer

In 1682, partly to try to curb the power of the Bedfords, Charles II created Tavistock as an incorporated Borough, with Mayor and Corporation. Revoked later by James II, this was the first attempt at some form of self-government for the residents. Later that century the Earl of Bedford was created Duke of Bedford and the title Marquis of Tavistock was given to the heir. The burgesses and freeholders of the town elected one of their number each year to be the Portreeve; the highest local government office.
