CHULMLEIGH IN ROBSON'S DIRECTORY OF 1839/40

Chulmleigh is a market town and parish in the hundred of Witheridge, 21 miles from Exeter and 194 from London, which contained in 1831, 1573 inhabitants. The town is situated on the north bank of the River Dart. It was nearly burnt down in the year 1803. The houses generally are of a very rustic construction. There was formerly a good trade here in wool-combing, of which no remains now exist.

 

The market is held on Thursday and a fair annually the last Wednesday in July, chiefly for cattle. The church was formerly collegiate and four prebends are still annexed to the rectory.  A tremendous storm severely damaged the church in 1797, in which the force of the lightning was so great, that a stone, upwards of 200lbs, was carried from the south-east pinnacle completely over the town without touching it. There is a small charity school here and chapels for the Wesleyans and Independents.
