Kingskerswell is a pleasant and scattered village near the junction of the Torquay and South Devon Railways, 3 miles south-south east from Newton Abbot and the like distance, north -west by west from Torquay. Within the parish and are included  the hamlets of North and South Wilborough.  The Lord of the Manor is Henry Langford Brown Esq, of Barton Lodge, a very extensive land proprietor and occupying a very handsome seat in the Tudor style, surrounded by a handsome wooded lawn and commanding some extensive views.

The church, dedicated to St Mary, stands in the Valley at the foot of the village and is a neat and ancient structure, and was renewed about two years ago at the expense of Mr. Brown and the Rev Aaron Neck, the latter of whom gave the organ and beautiful altarpiece. The living is a perpetual curacy in the gift of the vicar of St Mary. There are also places of worship for  the Baptists and Wesleyan Methodist and an excellent National School chiefly supported by the incumbent. Present population of the parish is 959.
