A talk by Dr Frances Billinge: “The Hole Family of Parke, Bovey Tracey: Five generations of mixed fortunes, and a final loss which was really a gain”.

Parke is a large estate in Bovey Tracey which the public has been able to enjoy for the last fifty years. The history of the Hole family of Parke will be explored, and the following questions addressed:

  • How did William Hole, a map maker acquire his fortune in the 1700s?
  • How did his son William afford the Parke estate in 1826?
  • As the largest landowners in Bovey Tracey why were they never Lords of the Manor?
