Game Stoolball

"It is reported that William III watched the game soon after he landed at Torbay, and that subsequently Queen Anne was an interested spectator."

M. S. Russell-Goggs, page 320. Note: we need to locate the full citations for this and all other Russell-Goggs references; short of this, we need to confirm the date of the Torbay landing. A cursory Google search does not reveal confirming evidence of this anecdote.


William of Orange (soon to be William III) landed at Torbay, Devon in November 1688. [ba]
