It has a cattle fair on the Wednesday before August 21st. The soil belongs to Sir E.M. Elton, Bart., the Rev. T.F. Dymock, Mr. R.W. Pike, Messrs. White, and several other freeholders. The Church (St. Peter,) is an ancient structure, with a tower and five bells; and the living is a perpetual curacy, consolidated with the vicarage of Stockland. Here is a Baptist chapel and a Sunday school." [From White's Devonshire Directory (1850)]
