History

There are records of Devonshire Quarrenden going back to the late 17th century - the Victorian pomologist Robert Hogg mentions a reference to it in the "Compleat Planter and Cyderist" of 1690. However its origins are unknown, although it may have come from France earlier in the 17th century.
