The whole trip was from Nottingham (Eastwood) to Devon, but most of the illustrations cover Devon.

Illustrations include Berry Pomeroy, Dartmeet, Clovelly, Goodrington, Hartland Point, Parracombe, steam roller stuck in ditch on Exmoor, Hounds near Dunster. One small picture of Mrs Curry and her dogs has been rather viciously scribbled out. The whole album has a very attractive period feel.

An interesting Indenture dated 24th October 1780 during the reign of King George III, between Henry Tuckfield of Fulford in the County of Devon Esquire of the one part and John Copplestone of Thowerton in the County of Devon yeoman regarding a property called Roulstones Cottage and lands including an Orchard and a Herb Garden in Thowerton. Other names mentioned include:- George Upcott, John Smith, Mary Smith, Mary Paul, William Paul & Henry Tuckfield, Generally a clean document with minor discolouration along the usual long-term storage folds. Part of Vignette has been cut away from the document and six, small jagged marks pierce the sheet. I have no idea whether this was an act of vandalism, or a way of showing the agreement was met and void. Comprising a single folded sheet approx. 30” x 24” with all text fully legible for transcription. Bearing a single red wax seal countersigned by Tuckfield and a blue single embossed revenue stamp with single lead escutcheon.
