" From this town," says Risdon, " the origin of the Chudleighs began." Sir W. Pole (d. 1636), after
remarking that Chudleigh was the ancient possession of the bishops of Exeter, observes, " and came
unto the famyly of Chidlegh, & dispersed & sold amongst the tenats & others, by John Chidley, father of
Sr. George. The name of the famyly of Chidlegh took their originall from this place, where they dwelled
in their own land, wch Sr. George Chudlegh yeat hath." The Chudleigh family, of Ashton, may have
been originally from Chudleigh, and may have possessed land there, but they never had the manor; it
passed direct at the alienation from the Bishops of Exeter to Thomas Bridges, who appears to have
sold a great deal of it off, in parts and parcels, soon after he became possessed of it."
