Transcript of Risdon's Survey of Devon with extracts, written in the 18th cent. partly by J. Milles
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:
- a transcript, in another hand, of sir William Pole's Survey of Devon, copied from an Anstis MS.
- various extracts from Devon inquisitions and other public records, in Dr. Milles's writing.
From p. 167 of Risdon's Survey.
- Creation: written in the 18th cent. partly by J. Milles
