BRIXTON

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

"BRIXTON, a parish in the hundred of Plympton, in the county of Devon, 4 miles to the S.E. of Plymouth. It is situated on the banks of the small river Yealm, not far from the South Devon railway. Petty sessions are held in the village. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Exeter, of the value of £107, in the patronage of the Dean and Canons of Windsor. The parochial charities amount to £50 a year. The chief seats are Kitley House and Brixton Hall. The former is an old mansion, partly rebuilt by Repton, situated in pleasant grounds, and containing some good pictures by Sir Joshua Reynolds. The manor formerly belonged to the Pollexfens."
