Devon County Members of Parliament, Part I: The Early Plantagenet Period (1213-1227)

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 44 (1912), pp. 366-381.

by

J.J. Alexander

Prepared by Michael Steer

Parliamentary government in England dates from the 13th century. Devon was represented in the House of Commons from 1213 until 1707, by two Knights of the Shire. Meetings in the early days were held in various places, most frequently Westminster, occasionally at an old cathedral city, for example, York, or a convenient midlands town like Northampton, and once at Exeter, where Edward I stayed for over a fortnight in 1285. Members for the most part were men of local importance. Alexander's paper records their names. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. The Internet Archive makes available, in its Community Texts Collection (originally known as Open Source Books), books that have been digitised by Google from a number of libraries. These are books on which copyright has expired, and are available free for educational and research use. The copy of this rare book is held at the Princeton University Library and is available from Internet Archive.

An index of the Shire Knight's names with the number of times each was elected for Devon, appears on pp. 380-381.
