Full description

Gover, J. E. B. + Mawer, A. + Stenton, F. M., 1931, The Place-Names of Devon: Part One, 635 (Monograph). SDV1312.

Tolcis Farm was mentioned as 'Tolresheghes' in 1346 & 'Tolshaies' in 1606. The first element is a surname such as 'Toller'.


Wilkin, W. H., 1936, Axminster notes, 360-5 (Article in Serial). SDV111336.

Tolcis, formerly Tolshays or Tollershays (with variants), was acquired from Newenham Abbey by the abbot Walter de la Houe, with Yetlands in about 1345. After the dissolution, Tolshays was a leasehold farm held under the tithing of Westwater within the manor of Axminster. Both Tolshays and Yetlands formed part of the Petre Estates.


Fox, H. S. A., 1972, Field Systems of East and South Devon: Part 1, 114 Fig 5 (Article in Serial). SDV111337.

Tolrehay (now Tolcis) originated as woodland clearing in 13C held by free tenants of Axminster Manor.
