Dulverton

"DULVERTON, a parish and market town in the hundred of Williton, in the county of Somerset, 13 miles N.W. of Tiverton railway station, and 25 S.W. of Bridgwater. It is situated in a vale on the river Barle. The manor formerly belonged to the crown, but by Edward I. was bestowed upon the Pyne family, and afterwards possessed by the Babingtons and Sydenhams. The town is small but well built. It is a polling-place, and petty sessions are held monthly. The inhabitants are chiefly employed in husbandry and the manufacture of crape. The neighbourhood is celebrated as the resort of the red deer and for its field sports and fishing. The Devon and Somerset stag-hounds are kennelled in the neighbourhood. There are some chalybeate springs, and lead is obtained." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
