Trans. Devon. Assoc. 39, (1907), pp. 216-222.


Emily Skinner

Prepared by Michael Steer

Tiverton was founded as a Saxon settlement and acknowledged as a Royal estate from 650AD. In 1106, on the orders of Henry I, Tiverton Castle was built. Improved in the 13th and 14th centuries, it was once the home to the Earls of Devon and a Plantagenet Princess. Before and during its growth in prosperity the town suffered a number of setbacks. The most notable of these were the Black Death (1348-50), the plague of 1591 that killed one tenth of the population, and the Great Fire of 1598.
