The city of Exeter: Letters and other papers

Report On the Records of the City of Exeter. Originally published by His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, 1916.

​

In L. 189, July 16, 1619, Isaack (sic) Bidwell, widow, petitions the Justices of the Western district desiring them to call the officers of the Corporation before them to render account of monies owing to her late husband, who was an orphan in the custody of the Corporation—with a note at the end by [Sir] Richard Hutton (fn. 30) desiring the Chamber to make her some satisfaction or "to make some certificate to the Masters of Requests that his Majestie may no more be trobled."

​

In L. 198 is an undated copy of her petition, in which she is called Isott Bidwell (fn. 31), with footnote: "Referred to the Justices of Assize for the countie of Devon." It states that her husband being left an orphan, "the Mayor and Aldermen of Exeter tooke into their hands certaine goods and chattles of his to the vallue of 150l. or thereabounts, of which she claims 23l. 18s. 8d. as still due to her. It is there filed with a letter to the Lords of the Council, dated Exeter, July 28, 1621, written by [Sir] Laurence Tanfield (fn. 32) and Sir Richard Hutton, to whom it had been forwarded on June 22, 1621. They report that they have heard the case and do not think "that shee hath any just ground of complaint."

​

In L. 264, dated Worcester House, Jan. 7, 1623–4, E[dward Somerset Earl of] Worcester (fn. 33) writes to the Mayor:—"After my very hartie comendacons, whereas I lately received a letter and this inclosed petition [L. 265], with direction from his Majestie that I should write unto you in the behalfe of the Petitioner that you should thinke of some satisfaction to be forthwith given her or otherwise her cause to have a rehearinge in the Court of Requests." He therefore advertises the Mayor that "accordingly you would take such order therein that this Petitioner maye have no further cause to trouble his Majestie with her clamors and complaints," &c.

​

L. 265. The petition referred to in L. 264. In this she is called "Isott Bidwell, widowe." See also Law Papers, "Bidwell v. The Chamber," 1615.

SOUTHCOTT V MORRELL

Sir Popham Southcott of Bovey Tracey, co. Devon, knt v William Morrell of Exeter, fuller

.    .    .    

On 30 July last, Morrell was in widow Bond's house in the parish of St Mary Steps, Exeter, where he said 'in a disgraceful and cursing manner', that 'if Sir Popham Southcote were not a base beggarly knight he would not have taken the business concerning the soapmakers.' The witness rebuked Morrell, but he replied that 'Sir Popham Southcote had been in the gaole long agoe if Sir George Southcote had not forgiven him fourteen hundred pounds'. Morrell also desired three Exeter soapmakers present to 'provide and have in readiness a kettle of boyl'd hot lee to through in Popham Southcote and his servants when they came into their houses about making of soap'. Thomas Warner, and the soapmakers John Glide, Humphrey Gilbert and Hugh Bidwell, were present.

​

​

(Witness 3), Hugh Bidwell of the city of Exeter, chandler, born there, aged about 35

To Southcott's libel:

1. He had known Southcott for over a year, who was commonly reputed to be a gentleman of an ancient family, a knight and a J.P. for Devon.    .    .

Signed by Hugh Bidwell [his mark], and by the three commissioners.

Hugh Bidwell is a signatory Church Warden declaring allegiance to the Crown in Newton St Cyres

NEWTON ST. CYRES - THE PROTESTATION RETURN OF 1641/2

By the end of 1640, King Charles I had become very unpopular.  Parliament forced him to make changes in the Constitution which gave them a bigger say in how the country was governed. From then on, Parliament was split into two factions - Royalists (Cavaliers) who supported the King and Parliamentarians (Roundheads) who wanted political and religious reform.

​

On 3 May 1641, every Member of the House of Commons was ordered to make a declaration of loyalty to the crown. This was ratified next day by the House of Lords. They called it their Protestation against " an arbitrarie and tyrannical government" and another order was made that every Rector, Churchwarden and Overseer of the Poor had to appear in person before the JPs in their Hundred to make this Protestation Oath in person. It was to  be a declaration of their belief in the" Protestant religion, allegiance to the King and support for the rights and privileges of Parliament".

​

 They then had to go back home to their own parish where any two of them were to require the same oath of allegiance from all males over the age of 18. The names of all who refused to make the oath were to be noted and assumed to be Catholics.

​

 We have, in the Devon Protestation Returns, a set of amazing documents - something akin to a census even though no women or children are named.  A transcription is available in the West Country Studies Library in Exeter.

​

The Protestation Returns are arranged by parish.

Newton St. Cyres belonged to the Hundred of Crediton

The original spelling has been preserved

…Signed by 

John Bradford - Vicar

William Payne - Constable

John Roberts - Churchwarden

Hugh Bidwell - Churchwarden

William Langworthy - Constable

Robert Cobley - Overseer

Thomas Pitt - Overseer
