Last updated

The High Sheriff of Devon is the Queen's representative for the County of Devon, a territory known as his/her bailiwick. Selected from three nominated people, they hold the office for one year. They have judicial, ceremonial and administrative functions and execute High Court Writs. The title was historically "Sheriff of Devon", but changed in 1974 to "High Sheriff of Devon".

History

The office of Sheriff is the oldest under the Crown. It is over 1000 years old; it was established before the Norman Conquest. It remained first in precedence in the counties, until the reign of Edward VII, when an Order in Council in 1908 gave the Lord-Lieutenant the prime office under the Crown as the Sovereign's personal representative. Under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972, on 1 April 1974 the office previously known as Sheriff was retitled High Sheriff. The High Sheriff remains the Sovereign's representative in the county for all matters relating to the Judiciary and the maintenance of law and order.[ citation needed ]

  14. Concise Dictionary of National Biography (1930), supporting the 1st Baronet's tenure as Sheriff. The standing effigy in Newton St Cyres church of his father John Northcote (d.1632) holds in his hand a baton, said in the Church information leaflet to denote his office as Sheriff. It may be questioned whether in the patriarchal society of the period a son would be appointed to this office whilst his father was still living.
