Started looking at this the other day and wondered why the Copleston’s had to auction off about 388 acres of land in Milton Damerel, Devon.

The explanation is below the auction document, having found it in the Milton Damerel Newsletter 3rd edition May 2000. http://www.miltondamerel.com/newsletters.htm
