The hamlet of Dodscott was listed in the Domesday Book, when it was one of 28 manors held by Gotshelm, who had sub-enfeoffed it to his tenant Walter of Burgundy. It was the cottage of the cottar Doda before 1066, In the 16th century it was the residence of Thomas Chafe (1585-1648), brother-in-law of his neighbour Tristram Risdon of Winscott. The Chafe family had originated at "Chafecombe" (modern Chaffcombe) near Chard in Somerset. He was the third son of Thomas Chafe (1560-1604), notary public for Exeter and twice mayor.
