Exeter in People's Lives
John Graves Simcoe: I grew up in Exeter, moving here in 1753 when I was a year old. I also died here in 1806.
William the Conqueror: Shortly after being crowned King of England, there was an uprising here in 1067, mainly led and encouraged by the mother of Harold Godwinson. I sailed from Normandy to this city and besieged it, which lasted for 18 days. After the city fell and the rebels were defeated, I ordered a castle built here in order to fortify the area.
