NOTE: This page does not provide a complete Gazetteer of Devon, as it is just meant to provide direct access to the various individual town and parish pages. Instead, following Wilcox's National Index of Parish Registers, Volume 8, Part 5: Devon, and Peskett's Guide to the Parish and Non-Parochial Registers of Devon and Cornmall 1538-1837, it merely lists, under their various names, all the pre-1837 parishes, together with the names of towns and sizeable villages that were not parishes, and place names that might be confused with parish names.

Other Ways of Finding Places in Devon

A compilation of places, over 7,500 in number, in Devon has been created as part of the overall GENUKI Gazetteer (which is used for the "Nearby Places" button on each parish page). This compilation was produced using the detailed Devon parish maps provided in Kain and Oliver's Historic Parishes of England and Wales, which are based on the 1945-48 one inch to the mile Ordnance Survey Maps. The place names that have been collected are those of all the named human habitations and constructions (villages, farms, cross-roads, etc.) but not in general those of natural features such as hills and woods. Non-specific descriptors such as "Mill" or "Weir" are not included. The GENUKI Gazetteer indicates which parish each place is located in, and also each place's actual OS grid reference (set up to act as a link via which the place can be found on a variety of maps). This gazetteer can be searched using the search form:

A yet more extensive listing of Devon places (nearly 12,000 in number) is provided by the Online Devon Gazetteer. This has been produced mainly from White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Devonshire (1850), whose text is used to to infer (unfortunately not necessarily always accurately) which parish or town the various places (chapels, churches, farms, hamlets, houses, inns, manors, schools, streets, villages, etc.) are located in. (This listing does not provide actual grid references.)

You may also find it worthwhile searching for churches in the Devon section of the GENUKI church database.
