Prepared by Michael Steer

Martin Dunsford (1744-1807), widely travelled sergemaker, antiquary, political and religious reformer, in his 'Memoirs of the Family of Dunsford' describes his family as 'remarkable for a long mediocrity of station in the useful employments of life'. In his roles as churchwarden, portreeve and overseer of the poor at Tiverton, he promoted interdenominational Sunday schools, and the introduction of free seating in the parish church.
