Prepared by Michael Steer

The author was born in Tiverton 2 Feb 1744 and died 13 M arch 1807 aged 63. In 1780 he married Anne Violl whose father was Samuel Tawman Violl, a surgeon of Moretonhampstead). Anne died 17 Oct 1872 . They had a daughter Eliza Dunsford who died 20 Dec 1782 aged 4 months. His "Historical Memoirs of Tiverton", was published in 1790 and he wrote several other works. His Historical Memoirs quickly became an information quarry for many later histories and documents. First George Boyce updated it, then William Harding considered that it needed extending with some things corrected, so authored The History of Tiverton, published in 1845. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy in the Bodleian Library collection and can be downloaded from Google Books. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
