LINK TO NEWTON ABBOT'S DESCRIPTION IN WHITE'S DIRECTORY OF 1850

 

Brian Randell has transcribed the Newton Abbot description in White's 1850 Directory. The transcription contains useful information about the different places - Newton Bushel, Wolborough, Highweek etc - which came together to constitute the modern town of Newton Abbot. It can be found at

http://genuki.cs.ncl.ac.uk/DEV/Wolborough/Wolborough1850.html

"Peskett: "What is now known as Newton Abbot comprises two adjoining 'twin' boroughs which are for ecclesiastical purposes in separate parishes and for civil purposes in separate hundreds, viz: Newton Abbot in Wolborough parish and Haytor Hundred and Newton Bushel in Highweek parish and Teignbridge Hundred."
