From White's Devonshire Directory of 1850

BULKWORTHY, a small scattered village, 7 miles S.W. of Great Torrington, has in its parish 196 souls and 6050 acres of land, including Heytown hamlet, and a large tract of waste. The trustees of the late Lord Rolle are lords of the manor; but the barton of Hankford belongs to the Rev. J. M. Stevens, and several other proprietors have estates in the parish. The Church was built by Chief Justice Hankford, as appears by an inscription on the window; and the curacy is annexed to the vicarage of Buckland Brewer.
