'Devon Boy, 1590'





Lympstone History Society has published Jenny Moon’s story of 16th century Devon village life and fishing in Newfoundland. It fits in neatly into the Raleigh 400th anniversary year, especially as Ralph Lane, one of Sir Walter’s captains on the 1585 attempt to colonise Roanoke Island, North Carolina, is said to have come from Lympstone. Born around 1530 he died in 1603.   


Lympstone History Society booklets can be bought at the Society’s talks, or from Graham Banks at ‘Clays’, The Strand (01395 223048) or via email: lympstonehistorusociety@gmail.com
