The Great Courts of Devon Tinners 1510 and 1710
By - Tom Greeves & Phil Newman
This book marks two specail anniversaries of the Devon tinners. It contains revised versions of the two papers presented at a celebration held on the 24th Sept 2010 at the Jubliee Hall, Chagford by members of the Dartmoor Tinworking Research Group and Chagford History Society, to commemorate the 300th and 500th anniversaries of the Great Courts held at Crockerntor, Devon.
Both papers explore the context of these two remarkable events with discussion, based on the original documentation and research about tinners and tinworking in Devon in the early 16th and 18th centuries
