The first certain documentary reference to the river is as Irym in the cartulary of Buckfast Abbey , dated 1240. [2] Other early recorded forms are Hyrm , Irm , Erm and, in the mid 16th century, Arme . The derivation of the name remains unknown. Ekwall 's suggestion that it is a back-formation from Ermington is now thought to be unlikely. [3] Tristram Risdon , in his 1811 Survey of Devon gives an alternate name for the River Erme as the River Arme. He also refers to the mouth of the River Erme as Armouth. [4] In Donn's map of Devon published in 1765, the village of Mothecombe at the mouth of the river, is referred to as Muddicomb. [5]
