West Country Poets

R. N. WORTH

This index refers to a page containing a biography of John BULTEEL and merely says:
"Mr. WORTH  in his 'West Country Garland,' says, 'The Family of  BULTEEL is of French origin, and has long been settled in Devonshire'.
But he is also referred to in the Introduction (p.vi}as follows:
"Another work often referred to in this volume is 'The West-Country Garland,' selected from the writings of the poets of Devon and Cornwall from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century, by R.N. WORTH, F.G.S., London, 1875. This work consisted of 175 pages and dealt with seventy-four writers, and as far as it goes it is a very reliable work.  Mr. WORTH, however, limits his biographical references to two or three lines, but his selections are most judicious, and the whole work is most useful, his introductory chapter being full of interesting information concerning West-Country bibliography."
