Devonians involved in The Monmouth Rebellion, 1685

Extracted from:

Wigfield, W.M. The Monmouth Rebels, 1685. Somerset Record Society, vol. 79 (1985).

Transcribed by Michael Steer

Between June, when the Duke of Monmouth landed at Lyme Regis in Dorset, and 6 July, 1685 when his army was defeated at Sedgemoor, a significant proportion of the population of West Dorset, East Devon and Somerset rose against the government of James II. This well-researched book is a 'roll call' of almost 4000 names of Monmouth rebels from lists made either in preparation for, or during the Assizes conducted throughout the West Country in September and October 1685. The ultimate section of the book provides an index of the West Country places of origin of the rebels, from which only the places and names of the Devonians have been extracted.
Note: The Somerset Record Society have raised no objections to the provision within GENUKI of this extract, but inform me that copyright in The Monmouth Rebels rests with the estate of the late W. Macdonald Wigfield, and that they have lost touch with the family. Needless to say if any objections are received from the estate to the continued provision here of this extract it will be immediately removed.
