I photocopied the parishes containing Mortimer and deviations of the name and reproduced them here. Contact me if you are after other names in the Devon parish listed for 1524-5.

Priorton Barton,Devon history,Roger IV Earl of March,Mortimer-Tanner pedigree.Exeter for this period was not included, but was indexed separately in a publication by Margery Rowe (Tudor Exeter Tax Assessments 1489-1595) –However this publication revealed no Mortimer\Mortymer names.
Nor were there any in M.Rowe’s Exeter indexes for the Military Survey 1522.
Author T.L Stoate states where 1524 was unreadable the 1525 subsidy was used. The introduction to the later subsidy 1543-5 (see next post) stated that the same family names may not appear in both subsidies – however the wealthy land owners and yeomen should be present, while tenant farmers being more mobile may have moved elsewhere in the county.
Our earliest known ancestor John Mortimer came from Priorton near Devon. 400 yr old farm buildings still stand along with refurbished ones – see photo and map of Priorton, Devon Farm buildings.
This 1524-5 listing and the later one, it’s said are quite comprehensive for Crediton and surrounding area.
People were taxed on G =Goods, or W=w ages earned. Some sources suggest a person’s wealth is underestimated.
Please send a message to me at diallen@melbpc(dot)org(dot)au replacing the bracketed word with a "real dot" if you'd like to share your Mortimer information.
