The Western Antiquary
Devon and Cornwall Note-Book

On 12th March 1881, an announcement appeared in the Weekly Mercury that a column would be set aside as a medium of communication between antiquaries and seekers after information concerning the history and traditions of the two Western Counties, Devon and Cornwall. These columns were then extracted and corrected before being republished in hardback. In all 12 volumes were created covering the period 12th March 1881 to December 1892, the 12th volume being an index. I have the first eleven volumes and will be extracting relevent articles, notes and queries and posting them on this page.
