Bishopsteignton appears to be named from a sanctuary or asylum built there by Bishop Grandisson of Exeter, that was invested with great privileges and immunities, and considered as inviolable. The bishop also erected a house with a chapel, the remains are still to be seen. The church is principally in the Norman style, with an enriched western doorway in excellent preservation; near it are the remains of an ancient chapel, and there was formerly a chapel at Venn, in the parish. The author describes and discusses the old ruined house at Venn. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
