Community Researcher, Olivia Hall, has given us three areas of research that give insight into Exeter’s multi-cultural past:

St Stephens Parish

Henry VIII’s Military Survey of 1522 which shows early records of foreign-born nationals in Exeter. Photo shows the parish of St. Stephen’s mentioned in the survey as we know it today.

The River Exe Harbourwhich looks at the ships, cargo and trade routes coming into port at Exeter and Topsham.

The Jewish Community which includes history of the Synagogue and details of the city’s census in 1841.
