The Universal British Directory of Trade, Commerce & Manufacture was issued in separate volumes over a period of 7 to 8 years between 1791 and 1798. As the different volumes were published, updates and alterations were made so that no listing can be specific to a single year but rather, to the final years of the 18th century.


No street locations were given for the traders. The original spelling has been retained.

CULLOMPTON is eleven miles from Exeter, on the great turnpike road to Bath and bristol. It is seated on a river not far from the sea and is a pretty good town. The market, which is on Saturday, is not very considerable; and there are two fairs annually: one on the first Wednesday in May, and the other on the first Wednesday in November. It is governed by a high constable and four petty constables. The parish church is a noble structure, has four aisles in it, and a curious gilt roof and rood loft; the tower is very handsome and lofty and has a fine peal of eight bells. The trade of the town is principally in the woollen branch, and consists of fine sagathees, serges, duroys and other goods of that description.
