The Redvers earls of Devon were one of the leading families of southern England in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, with large estates in Devon, Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Over 200 charters have survived before 1217 which relate to them, fully edited for the first time in this volume. The charters record the family's history, its part in national politics, and its estates. They also tell us about the religious houses, towns, economy and people of the region.
There is a full introduction followed by an edition of the charters, with a summary of each one in English, a careful Latin text, and scholarly apparatus and notes. There are three maps, a genealogical table, a glossary of technical terms and a detailed index.
