Rosemary Griggs has been researching Devon's sixteenth century history for years. She has

discovered a cast of fascinating characters and an intriguing network of families whose

influence stretched far beyond the West Country. She loves telling the stories of the forgotten

women of history — the wives, sisters, daughters, and mothers who stood behind more famous

men.Her first novel, A Woman of Noble Wit tells the story of Sir Walter Raleigh’s mother and

features many of the county’s well loved places.  Rosemary will have her quill pen at the ready

to sign copies of her book.

Rosemary also researches, creates and wears sixteenth century clothing to bring history to life

in talks and costume demonstrations for museums and community groups all over the West

Country.  Out of costume she leads heritage tours of the gardens at Dartington Hall.

David Griggs has been involved in the world of English Folk Song all his life and was a member

of well known Exeter based Folk Group Isca Fayre in the 1970s.
