Luppitt is a village and a parish on a bold range of hills, 4 miles N by E of Honiton. It has 782 souls and 4730 acres of land, including Shapcombe tithing, the small hamlets of Beacon and Shaugh, and a common of more than 500 acres.


The baronial family of Carew were formerly lords of the manor, and were seated till the 16th century at Mohun's Ottery, now a farm house in this parish.


The Rev, William Bernard of Clatworthy, Somerset is now lord of the manors of Luppitt and Mohun's Ottery, but a great part of the parish belongs to C. J. Helyar Esq, the Revs H. and H.W. Helyar and a few smaller freeholders.


The church (St. Mary ) is in the style which prevailed in the 15th century and has a tower and four bells.  It contains some ancient monuments of the Carew family and was appropriated to Newham Abbey.  The vicarage, valued in 1831 at £121, is in the patronage of the Rev. W. Bernard and incumbency of the Rev. John S. C. L. Cabbell who has held the living since 1796. The parsonage house is a small cottage.


There was anciently a free chapel at Mohun's Ottery and the presbyterians had formerly a meeting house at Shaugh. A house and 2½ acres of land belong to the church for repairs but were let in 1778 for 99 years at only 8s per annum in condineration of a fine of £96.


Two small schools are aupported by Mrs Elizbaeth P. Simcoe and the parish has a Friendly Society with a numerous list of members.
