Town of Barnstaple
Barnstaple is the main town in north Devon in southeast England, located on the river Taw flowing into the Bristol Channel. It has a population of about 53,000 (including satellite communities). Barnstaple had claimed borough status since Saxon times. In 1974, the then Municipal Borough of Barnstaple was merged with a number of neighbouring localities to form the District of North Devon, a local government district of the county of Devon.
Barnstaple Jewish Community
There is evidence of some Jewish families in Barnstaple from at least 1765(i), although very little is known of synagogue or organised Jewish community, which appears to have ceased to exist by the mid eighteenth century.
