The paper was presented at the Association’s July 1906 Lynton meeting. Totnes' borough charter was granted by King John, in about 1206. Totnes finally lost its borough status through local government reorganisation in 1974. It was served by Totnes electoral borough from 1295 until the reform act of 1867, but was restored by the 1884 Franchise Act. The constituency of Totnes was abolished a second time in 1983, and formed part of the South Hams until 1997, when it was restored as the Totnes county constituency: as such it returns one MP to Parliament. Totnes has a mayor who is elected by the 16 town councillors each year. The article, from a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
