Poet Elizabeth-Jane Burnett takes part in the ritual of the Hunting of the Earl of Rone in Combe Martin, Devon, and investigates its history. The tradition commemorates the shipwreck of the Earl of Tyrone in 1607, captured by grenadiers and executed for sedition. Elizabeth-Jane is originally from Devon. In this essay, she weaves memories of life and loss, childhood and belonging into a poignant reflection on ritual and place.
