Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

The Tithe Map describes the two farms; Higher and Lower Yelland separately. Higher Yelland (on the south-east side of the track) is owned separately and clearly functioned as a separate entity but the South Brent apportionment lists the same occupier for this dwelling house as for the Lower Yelland farmhouse to the north of the trackway; Philemon Brooking. This farmhouse is gone by the late 19th century historic map depiction and the two farms have been combined into one, under the name Yalland.
