Welcome to the Archive

Cross StreetMoretonhampstead History Society Archives have been built up since the Society was founded in 1965. It was originally, funded by a Lottery "Awards for All" grant together with financial help from the Dartmoor National Park. In 2001-2 the Heritage Lottery Fund funded the establishment of the Society's website (www.moretonhampstead.org.uk) that has textual information about the history of Moretonhampstead parish and a virtual archive of searchable databases for public records such as the censuses, parish registers, school records and trade directories.

A further heritage Lottery grant for 2011-14 has enabled us to physically archive our paper- based records and these are now catalogued on this database. The next phase has now begun and will incorporate our substantial collection of images into the archive database. This has also been made possible by a grant from Teignbridge District Council.
