"DUNSFORD, a parish in the hundred of Wonford, in the county of Devon, 5 miles N.E. of Moreton Hampstead, and 7 S.W. of Exeter, its post town. It is situated on the river Teign. The village is considerable. The land is chiefly arable and pasture, with 300 acres of coppice and a similar extent of furze. The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Exeter, value £297, in the patronage of B. Fulford, Esq., who is lord of the manor. The church is dedicated to St. Mary, and has a tower containing six bells. The chancel was rebuilt in 1846. It contains monuments to the Fulford family. Here is a school for both sexes. Fulford House is the principal residence. It was garrisoned by the royalists under Colonel Sir F. Fulford in the Civil War, but surrendered to Fairfax after a siege of ten days, during which it was much damaged. A fair is held on the Monday after the 8th September for cattle."
