UPDATE: Announcing our newest arrivals, the 1921 Census records.

the translations of the Bratton Clovelly Manor Rolls 1377-1684.

Bratton Clovelly is a beautiful village in West Devon where my ancestors lived in medieval times. The purpose of this site is to capture whatever we can learn of the parish, its inhabitants and properties before the time of people now living. Our aim is to include transcripts of historical records, photos, stories, analyses and other information that might help to picture what the parish was like through the centuries.

If you want to know what’s happening in Bratton Clovelly today, please check out theirĀ parish website.
