Eliz… The DRO has that document so I can add it to my pile of reading/viewings for my next
Interestingly, I hadn’t noticed the tendency of Devon people to be litigious but as it

involves a Caunter..

I would say it was Caunter but not Stoverton . However ,
TNA has a number of references to this Thomas Caunter of Staverton , yeoman , like a lot
of Devonians , he clearly likes litigation, and in 1593 is having a legal row with the
Carew/Carye family of Taddiford . Both of these are references from Torquay Natural
History Society Collection Staverton . I see it can also be Cawnter .
