The parish has 24A. of land, ten houses, and several gardens let for about £90, which is mostly applied in the service of the church. The Free School and master's house are vested with the trustees of the parish lands; and here is another school supported by the rector. The poor parishioners have about £6 yearly from various bequests."—From White's Devonshire Directory (1850)
