Exmouth – original text as in the above book:
The town of Exmouth, as its name imports, is situated at tlie mouth of the Ex, one of the largest rivers in Devonshire, which, rising in Exmoor, in Somersetshire, flows past Tiverton, Exeter, and Topsham, and after a course of about seventy miles discharges itself into the sea.
In the reign of King John, Exmouth appears to have been a port of some consequence; and in 1347 it furnished ten ships and one hundred and ninety-three mariners to the grand fleet assembled by Edward III. for his expedition against Fi’ance. In the reign of Henry VIII., Lcland calls it “a fisschar tounlet,” in which state it appears to have continued till about the middle of the last century, when it began to increase, in consequence of the number of persons visiting it for th.e sake of sea-bathing.
