NOSS MAYO (aka REVELSTOKE) 1914 - 1918  WAR MEMORIAL

 

"The origins of the name Noss Mayo are complicated. The village lies in the parish of Stoke, once a sub-parish of Yealmpton. Although the nearby estate of Membland was mentioned in Domesday there was no entry for Stoke and the first record we have is in 1198 when Richard Revel was the lord of Stoke and gave it the name of Revelstoke. In 1226 the church of St Peter's on the cliffs at Stoke was built - partially ruined it still stands today. In 1287 King Edward I gave Mathew Fitzjohn the manor of ‘Stok’ and so the village became known as Noss Mayo - Mathew’s Nose." (from the village website)

We have written these names as we found them in the documentary resources we have used.
