A county on the southwestern peninsula of England, with Cornwall to the west and Somerset and Dorset to the east. The county seat is Exeter, on the southern coast. The county is divided into eight feudal baronies. The current earl, since 1217, is technically the young Baldwin de Redvers, although a powerful knight named Falkes de Bréauté rules as regent until Baldwin comes of age. There is considerable friction between de Bréauté and the sheriff Robert de Courtenay, who is also a major landholder in Devonshire.
Significant exports from Devonshire to the rest of England and Wales include wool and various metals, especially tin and copper. Exeter is also a major center for receiving goods from France.
The Hermetic covenant of Colkirk is on the northern coast of Devonshire, near the town of Bideford. The covenant is allied by blood with the baron of Barnstaple, currently Geoffrey de Braose. Other known sites of magical significance within this county include Angel’s Bowl and Down Tor.
