My work so far has primarily been in the visual arts and Colorado prehistory, but I am very interested in writing more about Human Rights and History. Thanks so much to the many who have helped me along the way, most notably and consistently Sitush, Ipigott, Modernist, and The Transhumanist! I wouldn't have come nearly as far without your direction and support. Namaste.

Did You Know (DYK) and Recognition[edit]

Temporary holding space[edit]

Devon sources[edit]

  • I have found an invaluable source to be Vivian, you might expect me to say that, and I believe the history of Devon is about people fundamentally, and especially the Landed gentry, who built the large houses, parts of the churches, etc., from whose ranks were appointed all the officials of local government. These are the people who populate Vivian and who are talked about in all the other works.
  • Hoskins is essential, perhaps the most respected by other authors - some even dedicate their works to him - but his main work ("A New Survey of England: Devon, 1959") is an exhaustive overview summary and thus lacks detail. I think he's published much of his detailed knowledge in many specialist articles.
  • Pevsner is the godfather for county architecture, church monuments etc.
  • Risdon's work is also essential. He saw and recorded many documents and facts the sources of which are now lost. He is quoted by all later writers, Prince, Polwhele, Hoskins etc. The 1810 edition has notes which bring histories up to that date.
  • William Pole (antiquary) is possibly even better than Risdon, but harder to get hold of.
  • Hoskins, Pevsner and Risdon I find an excellent combination for cross-checking and a 3-D view.
  • Lauder's Devon Families is good at least for the sort of thing that I find interesting.
  • Ideally also the 2 vol ("2 part") set on the Devonshire Domesday Book, which contains translated transcripts of every entry, and copious notes on the subsequent descents of most manors and estates. Thorn, Caroline & Frank, Domesday Book, Vol. 9, Devon, Parts 1 & 2, Phillimore Press, Chichester, 1985. (That's how I knew Annery wasn't in DB, it's got very good indexes).
  • Lysons is good also as you know.
  • If you can pick up an old copy (the older the better) of Burke's Landed Gentry cheap, it's very useful, as it records long descents of families resident on certain estates.
  • 140-odd volumes of the Transactions of the Devonshire Association. Links to the online volumes (most of them up to vol 52 (1920)), a list of the titles of all the papers, and abstracts of the latest vols are on the TDA website here.

be cautious in making use of those older sources like Tristram Risdon (died 1640), though, since later research can have revised or even completely overturned what they believed – that's why we usually attribute: "Risdon said ..."
