CLIST-HONITON, a parish in the eastern division of the hundred of BUDLEIGH, county of DEVON, 4½ miles (E. by N.) from Exeter, containing 383 inhabitants. -The living is a perpetual curacy, within the peculiar jurisdiction and patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Exeter, endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £300 parliamentary grant. The Clyst, though an insignificant stream, imparts its name to this and the other parishes through which it passes. Thomas Weare by his will bearing date 28th April, 1691, charged his estate, called Holbrook, with the annual payment of £4. 10. for educating six children. This sum is regularly paid by the owner of the property, and with subscriptions, affords instruction to all the poor children of the parish who apply.
