[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868)]

"BIGBURY, a parish in the hundred of Ermington, in the county of Devon, 3 miles to the S. of Modbury, its post town. It is situated on the west bank of the river Avon, a little above its entrance into Bigbury Bay, a rocky and dangerous inlet of the English Channel, and a favourite haunt of smugglers. The bay is about 7 miles in breadth. The living is a rectory in the diocese* of Exeter, of the value of £658, in the patronage of C. Livingston, Esq. The church contains a monumental brass, and is dedicated to St. Lawrence."
