I can do no better than quote from the Exeter Cathedral website ….

The earliest mention of an organ in Exeter Cathedral is in the Fabric Roll of 1286 when a payment was made for casing the organ. In 1513 £165. 5s. 7½d was spent on a new organ to be placed on the screen.

John Loosemore was put in charge of the organ after the Restoration, and after visits to Cornwall, he completed the building of the new organ in Exeter Cathedral in 1665. It underwent several changes during the next two centuries, but the magnificent case has survived to this day, having been enlarged at the time of a radical rebuild by Henry Willis in 1891.
