The Protestation Return for East Budleigh is lost so we have included these men's names from the 1569 Muster Roll. This list was made some 80 years before the Protestation which dates from the winter of 1641/42. This is not a complete list of all men in East Budleigh at the time - it is a list of all who were able-bodied and capable of fighting in the army.
*Just occasionally, these lists contain the names of women. This is because the law required householders of either sex to take individual financial responsibility for the provision of men and weapons as they had been assessed.
