Full description

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

Tithe Map for this farmstead is very battered but the main buildings are just about visible. Many of these are the same/similar to the late 19th century historic map depiction. Apportionment 1054 lists 'Pullabrook; dwelling house and other buildings'.

Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

Pullabrook shown on 19th century map as a large group of buildings around several yards.

Reichel, O. J., 1897, The Domesday Hundreds 5: The Hundred of Teignbridge, 227 (Article in Serial). SDV283555.

Pullabrook, alias Pulbrook, was recorded in Domesday as "Polebroch".

Gover, J. E. B. + Mawer, A. + Stenton, F. M., 1932, The Place-Names of Devon: Part Two, 468 (Monograph). SDV337894.

Pullabrook is 'Polebroc' in the Domesday Book (1086), 'Polebrok' in the 1333 Subsidy Rolls and 'Pollebrok' in the 1330 Subsidy Rolls. The 'll' points to a personal name ('Polla'), rather than the Old English spelling pol, or 'pool'.
