SIDBURY, a parish in the eastern division of the hundred of BUDLEIGH, county of DEVON, 2½ miles (N. N. B.) from Sidmouth, containing 1612 inhabitants. The living is a vicarage, in the peculiar jurisdiction and patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Exeter, rated in the king's books at £28. The church is dedicated to St. Giles. There is a place of worship for Independents. Sidbury is a decayed market-town, but there are still two annual fairs for cattle, on the Tuesday before Ascension-day, and at Michaelmas. On the Barton, or manor, of Sand is an old mansion, with the inscription Hortus Johannis Capelli over the garden door. A school is supported by small annual subscriptions.
