Childe's Tomb



Childe the Hunter travelling home one dark and stormy night, got caught in a Blizzard his horse fell and died so the story goes he slit the horse's belly open and crawled in to keep warm sooner or later realising he would'nt get home composed a note (just happened to have Quill and ink on him) saying that who ever finds me and gives me a Christian Burial shall have all my land and money later a couple of uneducated peasants found Childe and the note and of course not being able to read took the note to the Tavistock monks whereby they set off to find Childe the Hunter as they were doing this the monks of Plymstock also heard about Childe's land and money and the request for a Christian Burial set off on to the moors where they ambushed the monks of Tavistock and gave them a good seeing too! took the note and all that went with it. doug Posted by doug
