THE first edition of the " History of Chudleigh " was published in 1852. Finding it was out of print, and having expended some time and trouble in collecting materials for it, I was strongly urged to issue a second edition. The work has been considerably enlarged with such new matter as would add to its improvement and bring it down to the present time. I have to acknowledge with many thanks the kind assistance of Mr. C. Langley in supplying valuable information. I should wish also to mention Mr. W. B. Scott, who has afforded me the use of his library. To Mr. W. W. Snell I am greatly indebted for his unwearied and disinterested kindness in revising and rearranging the work, as well as examining and correcting proofs.
