Note 070
From Chapter 61 of the Decline & Fall

I have applied, but not confined, myself to A Genealogical History of the noble and illustrious Family of Courtenay', by Ezra Cleaveland, Tutor to Sir William Courtenay, and Rector of Honiton; Exon. 1735, in folio. The first part is extracted from William of Tyre; the second from Bouchet's French history; and the third from various memorials, public, provincial, and private, of the Courtenays of Devonshire. The rector of Honiton has more gratitude than industry, and more industry than criticism.
