"TAMERTON-FOLIOT, a parish in the hundred of Roborough, county Devon, 5 miles N.W. of Plymouth, its post town. The village, which is extensive, is situated at the confluence of the rivers Tavy and Tamar. It is supposed by Camden to be the Roman Tamara, on Icknield Street. The parish is celebrated for its fruit. In the grounds of Warleigh House is an heronry. The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Exeter, value £315, in the patronage of the lord chancellor. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, contains monuments of the Copleston, Radcliffe, and Bampfylde, families. The greater portion of the church has been rebuilt since 1850. The parochial charities produce about £140 per annum, of which £124 go to Dean's school, and £8 to Sir C. Bampfylde's almshouses. There are an endowed and a parochial school, and a Sunday-school is held at each. Maristow, Looseley, Roborough, Upland House, Cann Cottage, and Warleigh are the principal residences. The last named has been the manorhouse since the reign of Stephen. The manor descended through the Folliotts, Gorges, Bonvilles, and Coplestons to the Bampfylde family, and is now the property of the Rev. W. Radcliff, wh-G purchased the estate of the Bamfyldes. A fair for cattle is held on the third Wednesday in July."
