Excerpt from Notes on the Cathedrals

In the year 705 the great diocese of Wessex was divided, and Devonshire with Cornwall came under the control of the bishops of Sherborne. So they continued until 909, when the see of Crediton was founded for the two counties. In 936. Athelstan having completed the conquest of the West, a separate see was established for Cornwall at St. Germans. Crediton and St. Germans were again united in 1042 under Bishop Living: eight years later the place of the see was removed to Exeter by Bishop Leofric. Athelstan had founded a monastery there, which Sweyn destroyed in 1003. But Canute in 1019 built a new church, and this in 1050 became the Cathedral. It stood on the site of the present building, and all trace of it has now disappeared. Bishop Warelwast was the first builder of the church as we now know it: the two transeptal towers of his work remain. In 1280 Peter Quivil succeeded to the bishopric and began his wonderful transformation: it is to him that we owe the Decorated work of the building.

The see of Exeter, with its thirty-two manors and fourteen palaces, was one of the richest and most attractive in England. Its bishops being largely drawn from the wealthy families, were able to carry out their building operations in a lavish manner.
