Peter Blundell (c.1520-1601) was a prosperous clothier, trading between Tiverton and London. Dying in 1601 having never married and with no children, he left his inheritance to fellow clothiers, their families and his employees. He also created several charitable trusts and gave funds to build Blundell's School, to be a free grammar school.
