Historian and antiquary Rev. John Pike Jones, BA, (1793- Feb 4 1857), Vicar of Alton Staffs 1829-57 and rector of Butterleigh 1832-1857. He was born in Chudleigh, and was Curate of North Bovey 1816-21. He was a keen politician and was nicknamed "Bovey Jones". He authored an impressive number of books and became involved in a bitter controversy with the Bishop of Exeter in 1820.
