Acknowledgements

This project would not have been possible without the grant of £5000 from the Lottery "Awards for All" Scheme, our application for which was supported by Teignbridge Council of Voluntary Service. We are extremely grateful to both agencies for all the encouragement and advice they gave us. We would also like to acknowledge a further donation of £500 from Dartmoor National Park Authority to upgrade our scanning equipment.

We would also like to acknowledge the gift of a transcription of Moretonhampstead Parish Registers up to 1837 made in 1977 by Dr Sellman at the University of Cambridge. We are grateful to the Rector, the Churchwardens and the Parochial Church Council for allowing us access to these and to later records held in the vestry.

We are grateful to Adam Sexton, a final year computer science student at the University of Exeter, for his hard work in assembling the original system of texts and databases from which the current system has developed.

We are grateful to Merlin Howse of www.moretonhampstead.net for all his time, advice and work in continually upgrading and improving the site.

We are also grateful to many local people who have contributed photographs or allowed us to see the deeds of their properties, and to a number of family historians who have shared the results of their research with us. Our gratitude to staff at the West Country Studies Library, the Devon Record Office, and the Devon and Exeter Institution Library is especially great. We are also grateful to publishers and others who have allowed us to display excerpts from copyright material and reports which are not generally available.
