It has a wooden belfry and one bell. Its rectory, valued in K.B. at £6. 4s. 7d., and in 1831 at £66, is in the gift of the Dean and Chapter, and incumbency of the Rev. T. Coldridge." [From White's Devonshire Directory (1850)]

A parish in the centre of the old walled City of Exeter. Its population was 325 in 1801, and 360 in 1841.
