[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868)]

"BRATTON-CLOVELLY, a parish in the hundred of Lifton, in the county of Devon, 8 miles to the W. of Okehampton, its post town. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Exeter, of the value of £412, in the patronage of the Bishop of Exeter. In this village was born the distinguished lawyer, Henry de Bracton, who flourished in the 13th century, and was author of the well-known work entitled "De Legibus et Consuetudinibus Angliæ." On a hill to the N. of this place, are the remains of a Roman encampment, called Broadbury Castle, with a rampart and ditch."
