  • Request

The basis of both this volume and MS. Top. Devon b. 3 is a transcript (on 346 pages) of Risdon's Survey of Devon, nearly agreeing with the printed edition. This was then doubly (in some places quadruply) interleaved, and on the inter-leaves were written:

  1. a transcript, in another hand, of sir William Pole's Survey of Devon, copied from an Anstis MS.
  2. various extracts from Devon inquisitions and other public records, in Dr. Milles's writing.

From p. 167 of Risdon's Survey.
