Ford and its associations

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 33 (1901) pp. 693-713


R.W. Cotton

Prepared by Michael Steer

Ford House has provided hospitality for kings, queens, princes, princesses and numerous lords and ladies since the reign of Elizabeth I. It is named after a ford in the Aller Brook which carried the road to Shaldon, St Marychurch, and Aller, and lies within the ancient parish of Wolborough. Prior to the dissolution of the monasteries, Wolborough belonged to Torre Abbey. The present house bears the date 1610 and is built in the shape of the letter E, commonly thought to be in honour of Queen Elizabeth 1, who had just died. It is a plain, substantial structure built of rough-casted stone in the Elizabethan style. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
