The parish of Tetcott in Devon, England was the former manor of the Arscotts. John Arscott, the last of the family, was an avid hunter and kenneled his pack at Tetcott until his death in 1788. The sporting rights were later acquired by Vincent Calmady who around 1872 formed a pack of otter-hounds and in 1879 recommenced fox-hunting. Following Calmady’s run of the country there have been various adjustments to the area’s organization but the South Tetcott Hunt and Tetcott Hunt continue today on the rugged landscape.
