  BARNSTAPLE is a market town, borough, and port, in the union, deanery, and archdeaconry to which it gives its name, diocese of Exeter, hundred of Braunton, North Devonshire, for which it is a polling place; 9 miles north-east from Bideford, 11 north-west from South Molton, 40 north-west from Exeter, and 192 miles by road, and 212 by railway from London; at the confluence of the rivers Yeo and Taw, which here expand into a broad estuary, which flowing westward joins the river Torridge about 7 miles below, and falls into the British* Channel at Barnstaple, or Bideford, Bay.

  This place was originally part of the Royal demesne, and was constituted a borough by King Athelstan, who is supposed to have built a castle here, but of which there are now no remains, except a mound near the confluence of the rivers, which is said to have been the site, and which is now planted with trees and shrubs, forming a pleasing promenade. In Domesday Book it states that there were forty burgesses within the borough, and nine without, and that they were exempt from paying taxes, or serving on any expedition, other than at the same time as the men of Exeter and Totnes. The manor was given by William the Conqueror to Judhael de Totnes, who founded a monastery of Cluniac Monks, which existed until the dissolution by Henry VIII. The borough, according to Risdon, was incorporated by Henry I., and its privileges were further extended by King John, whose charter was confirmed in the 17th Edward IV. By a charter of James I. a steward and recorder were added to the corporate body, and the government of the town was vested in a mayor, high steward, recorder, two aldermen, and 22 common councilmen, but by the Municipal Act of 1835 it was divided into two wards, and placed under the management of a mayor, recorder, six aldermen, and 18 common councilmen, with a commission of the peace consisting of 10 magistrates, who hold petty sessions every alternate Thursday. The right of returning two members to Parliament was granted by the charter of 23rd Edward I., and they were elected by the burgesses of the town until the Reform Act of 1832, when the borough was extended, and the adjoining suburbs, including a great portion of Bishops Tawton and Pilton were added thereto.

  This place was a port as early as Edward III., and in after years equipped three ships of war against the Spanish Armada; and several privateers were sent out from here, one of which captured a prize on the Coast of Guinea, "having in her four chests of gold value £12,000," besides other valuables. The port has jurisdiction over that portion of the coast which lies north and north-east from the mouth of the Taw, and includes Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Lynton, &c., to the borders of Somersetshire. Vessels of two hundred tons can load and unload at the town quays, and those of larger tonnage at Fremington Pill, about three miles down the estuary. The river is also navigable for barges about three miles above the town.

  During the wars between Charles I. and the Parliament this town was strongly attached to the Royal cause, and was garrisoned by Prince Maurice on behalf of the Royalists in September, 1643, but it was taken by the Parliamentarians, and garrisoned by the Earl of Essex in the following July, who held it until September, when it was surrendered to the Royalist General Goring; and when the clubmen of Devon gave in their adhesion to the Parliamentarians in October, 1645, it was under the government of Sir A. Apsley, on behalf of the King. It was blockaded by Sir Thomas Fairfax, in March, 1646, and surrendered to him on the 10th April, after the fall of Exeter.

  The GUILDHALL, in the High Street, is a handsome edifice, which was erected in 1826, in which the county and borough magistrates hold their petty and quarter sessions, and the County Court is held there monthly.

  The BOROUGH GAOL, in the square, was erected in 1828, but plans have been prepared for a more commodious building, to be erected on the quay.

  THE NORTH DEVON HOSPITAL.-The foundation stone of this building was laid in 1825 by Lord Fortescue (grandfather of the present earl), and the Hospital was opened in 1826 for the reception of 20 in-patients, but with the capacity for 40, the original cost of its erection being £2,790. The eastern wing was erected in 1831, and the western wing was completed in 1839, but it was not until 1852 that the whole space thus added was utilised. The Fortescue wing was added in 1863, and many improvements, both internal and external, have been made from time to time, amongst which is a new front porch, called the Fortescue Memorial Porch. The number of beds made up is 100. It is entirely supported by voluntary contributions, and supplies relief to the poor of a very large surrounding district, including not only the northern division of this county, but the western townships of Somerset, and the northern extremity of Cornwall. All the medical officers (except the house surgeon) give their services gratuitously.

  The BARNSTAPLE AND NORTH DEVON DISPENSARY, in Boutport Street, was established on the 14th February, 1832.

  The ASSEMBLY ROOMS, in Boutport Street, were erected in 1800, and are very convenient for balls, concerts, &c.

  The LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTION was established in 1845, principally through the means of W. F. Rock, Esq., of London, who is a native of this town, and who subscribes £100 annually for the admission of 100 members free. It is well supplied with the literature of the day, and the science and art classes are now connected with those at the South Kensington Museum; there are also classes for other branches of education, including languages, shorthand, &c.

  The BRIDGE across the Taw, connecting Barnstaple with Tawstock, is supposed to have been erected about the 12th and 13th centuries; it is a fine structure of 16 arches; its maintenance and repair are well provided for by private bequests and donations held in trust for that purpose.

  An Act of Parliament was obtained in the last session of Parliament for the purpose of making a line of railway from this place to Ilfracombe; it will leave the main line close by Sticklepath Bridge, cross the river near the old bridge, on a sharp curve, reaching the quays just opposite the Custom House, where the Station is proposed to be made (new quays will be built outside the railway for Barnstaple trade); it will then cross at Pottington, passing through Ashford, Braunton, Morthoe, and West Down to Ilfracombe.

  The ANCIENT PARISH CHURCH, dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, is at present under restoration at the hands of G. G. Scott, Esq., R.A. The building, as originally erected A.D. 1316, consisted of a nave and chancel, to both of which were added north and south aisles about 200 years ago. The capacity of the church was thus greatly increased; and after the erection of galleries, in 1820, 1400 persons could be accommodated without difficulty. Mr. Scott has already taken down the south gallery, and by rebuilding and extending the south wall outwards, has enlarged the area of the church. A handsome organ chamber has been added on the north side. The monuments, which are very handsome, are also of much local interest, showing Barnstaple to have been a town of wealth and commercial importance at a date when Liverpool and Manchester were almost unknown. The steeple is an oaken framework covered with lead, and as is frequently found to be the case with steeples so constructed, is warped by the action of the sun's heat, and bears towards the south. Its condition, however, is perfectly secure. The vicarage, in the incumbency of the Rev. Gilbert Innes Wallas, M.A., is valued at £324 per annum, with residence, and is in the patronage of Lord Wharncliffe.

  HOLY TRINITY is a district Church, situate in the Barbacan, the erection of which was commenced in 1843, but was not completed until 1847, the district having been formed by order in council in 1846. The original church was in the Perpendicular style of the 15th century, but from some defect in its construction it was found necessary to rebuild it with the exception of the tower, which has lately been done on the site of the old one; it was a cruciform edifice, consisting of nave 83 feet long by 41 feet wide, choir 29 feet by 17 feet, with north and south aisles and transept, and tower containing six bells; it now consists of a lofty nave, with clerestory, chancel, and north and south aisles with open timber roof; the seats are open benches, which have been principally constructed out of the old pews, and all the old materials of the former church have been used in rebuilding the new one: the choral stalls in the chancel are principally new, and the floor is paved with Minton's encaustic tiles. A handsome organ chamber has been added on the north side. The pulpit, lectern, and font, which were handsomely carved in Caen stone by Mr. Simon Rowe, of Exeter, are still retained; the pulpit was the gift of Sir Peregrine Acland; the lectern, the gift of John Mackrell, Esq.; the cushion being added by Mrs. Mackrell; and the font was the gift of Dr. Budd. A memorial stained-glass window has been presented by the Rev. C. Haggard, and another has been placed in the east end; the west window is a copy from Merton College, Oxford, to which some stained-glass has been added. The church was re-opened for divine service by the Right Rev. Frederick Lord Bishop of Exeter, on the 12th January, 1870. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the incumbency of the Rev. Christopher Haggard, M.A., valued at £120 per annum, in the patronage of the Rev. John Boyle.

  ST. MARY MAGDALEN'S CHURCH, in Bear street, is a neat plain edifice, which was completed in 1846; it consists of nave and north and south aisles, with tower and spire 115 feet high. The vicarage, in the incumbency of the Rev. Henry John Bull, M.A., is valued at £150 per annum, and is in the alternate patronage of the Crown and the Bishop of Exeter.

  The ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH is a fine edifice in Trinity Street, in the Norman style, and was founded by Sir Bourchier Wrey, Bart., in 1855, to which schools for children of both sexes are attached, with Presbytery for the priest's residence, separating the church from the schools.

  The Baptists, Bible Christians, Brethren, Congregationalists, and Wesleyans have also places of worship here; the Congregational Chapel, in Cross Street, is now being rebuilt on a more extensive scale, to meet the requirements of the increasing congregation.

  The GRAMMAR SCHOOL.- This ancient and interesting building, situated in the parish churchyard, formerly a chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary and St. Anne, with the exception of the south entrance porch or tower, was probably erected during the latter part of the thirteenth century, or very early in the fourteenth century. This portion consists of a crypt, or undercroft, having six narrow windows and a western doorway opening into the churchyard; in this crypt are seen the very quaint and interesting oak pillars, braces, and beams supporting the floor of the chapel, which is of the same dimensions as the crypt, viz., 38 feet in length by 18 feet in breadth, having four windows and a south doorway, to which access was probably obtained by a flight of external steps. Of the windows, that of three lights in the east end, and two of two lights each in the north and south walls, are the original, and have been carefully restored; of the west window, which is new, no vestige existed previous to restoration, save the inner arch, the splays having been cut away to admit of the insertion of a wooden casement. The roof is of steep pitch, and before restoration was ceiled with plaster; this has all been removed, the timbers cleaned and repaired, and the roof is restored to its original proportions, as an open cradle roof of the earliest form. On the south side is a piscina of the same date as the remainder of the chapel, the shelf or basin having been destroyed in the last century to admit of the walls being wainscotted. On the exterior the principal features of the restoration are the lowering of the ground around the building, new cross to east gable, a new bell-cote on the ancient masonry base, and repairs to the coping and masonry generally. The bell now hanging in the bell-cote was presented to the school by the Rev. T. Wm. Marshall, vicar of Barnstaple, in 1812, and has an inscription to that effect, but previous to the late restoration lay disused in the porch, owing to the dilapidated and insecure condition of the bell-cote, the upper part of which has been rebuilt in brick. As the base of the turret seems to be of a date coeval with the erection of the older portions of the building, an earlier bell must have existed, which perchance becoming cracked, was recast or replaced by the existing one. The south porch or tower was erected in the fifteenth century, having three windows; in the west side is a doorway with elliptic arched head, having large bold pateræ carved in the hollow mouldings of the jambs and arch. The roof is covered with a lead flat, from which the water is discharged through the ancient gurgoyles, and surrounded by an embattled parapet, the merlons of which are stepped on the south side. It is intended to place new steps to the entrance, and rebuild in stone, with coping of granite, the whole of the existing brick wall around the churchyard, which has been greatly improved by the recent lowering of the surface of the ground. The works were carried out by Messrs. Pulsford and Oatway, under the direction of Messrs. Gould and Son, architects and members of the Exeter Diocesan Architectural Society.

  The BLUE COAT SCHOOLS, in the north walk, were rebuilt by subscription in 1834, and provide for the education and clothing of 50 boys and 30 girls.

  There are National, Infant, Roman Catholic, and Wesleyan schools for children of both sexes.

  There are numerous charitable bequests for the benefit of the poor, and several almshouses, which altogether provide dwellings for 96 poor people.

  The manorial rights are the property of the corporation, having been sold to them in the early part of the present century by Sir John Chichester.

  The market days are on Tuesday and Friday, the latter being the principal one, and four great cattle markets or fairs are held on the Fridays before the 21st March and 21st April, the last Friday in July, and the second Friday in December. The great annual fair, which is much noted in this part of the county, commences on the Wednesday after the 19th September, and lasts three days; it is for horses, cattle, and pleasure.

  The market house is one of the finest in the country, extending from the Guildhall, in High Street, to Boutport Street, and is well and conveniently arranged for all business purposes.

The population of the parish and borough, by the census of 1861, was as follows:-






Bishops Tawton (part of)





Pilton (part of)
