FENITON, a parish in the hundred of HAYRIDGE, county of DEVON, 4 miles (W. by S.) from Honiton, containing 321 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Exeter, rated in the king's books at £16. 18. 6½., and in the patronage of the Rev. J. Rogers, Mr. Wolley, and the Northcote family, alternately. The church, dedicated to St. Andrew, has a very rich wooden screen. The villages of Colestock and Corscombe are in this parish. Feniton bridge was the scene of a sanguinary contest, in which Sir J. Russell and Lord Grey defeated the Cornish insurgents, in the reign of Edward VI.
