Gittisham, small village and parish parish in the east division, East Budleigh Hundred, the Archdeaconry and the Diocese of Exeter, less than 2 mi. from Ottery St Mary, 2-3/4 miles west southwest of Honiton, and less than 4 miles southwest of Combe Raleigh. (Lewis and maps) "... has in its parish 376 souls and 2067A. 2R. 5P. of land... The knightly family of De LUMINE held the manor in the reign of Henry II., and it afterwards passed to the WILLINGTONS, BEAUMONTS, and the PUTTS. It passed from the late Rev. Thos. PUTT to the Rev. Henry Wm. MARKER, the present lord of the manor, and owner of most of the parish, who has a pleasant seat here called Coombe House, a large stone mansion in the Elizabethan style, standing on a commanding eminence in a well-wooded park, overlooking the Otter valley... The Church is an ancient structure, with a tower and three bells, and contains some fine monuments to the Beaumont and Putt families..." (White)
