Satterleigh 1850


               From White's Devonshire Directory of 1850

SATTERLEIGH is a small parish in the Mole Valley, 4 miles S.S.W. of South 
Molton, containing only 61 souls, and 515 acres of land. Mrs. M.F. Byne, of 
Exeter, is lady of the manor, but part of the soil belongs to Messrs. John 
Baker and Joseph and James Thorne, and the Rev. James Gould. The latter is 
patron of the rectory, valued in K.B. at £4. 0s. 7½d. and in 1831 at 
£120. The Rev. W. Thorold, of Warkleigh, is the incumbent, and has here 30 
acres of glebe. The tithes were commuted in 1840, for £70 per annum. The 
Church (St. Peter,) is a small antique fabric, with a wooden belfry and 
three bells. The FARMERS are John Baker, Barton; John Dennis, Thos. 
Phillips, John Squire, and Wm. Squire. The latter is also a maltster.
