The Worthies of Devon: Addenda

The Devonian Year Book, London: The Devonian Association, (1912) illus. pp. 32-41.

by

R. Pearse Chope

Prepared by Michael Steer

National pride in the industrial might of Britain and its growing Empire during the Victorian and Edwardian eras generated an increased public awareness of regional identity. Devon literature of that period became no longer just of interest to antiquarians or tourists. There was a growing market for it among Devonians, including those expatriates who formed Devonian associations in London and elsewhere. The London Devonian Association published a yearbook for many years. This article by the yearbook's editor provides an index of the names of prominent Devonians compiled from Prince's "Worthies of Devon", from the reports of the Devonshire Association's Celebrities Committee and from a variety of other sources. The article is intended to supplement Chope's earlier indexes that appeared in the Association's 1910 and 1911 yearbooks. An original (print) copy of the year book is held at the University of Toronto Library and was produced from a digital copy that can be downloaded from: https://books.google.co.uk/books with a search by either author or title, and also from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
