Colyton Parish History Society


Founded in 1986, the Colyton Parish History Society specifically includes the word "Parish" to include the surrounding villages which have contributed so much to the history of the area.

The society has a collection of deeds, documents, books, photographs, maps, and other records relating to Colyton's history.

Additions to this collection, especially old photographs are most welcome if appropriate we are happy to copy and return to the owner. An acknowledgement can be provided in our records.

THE NEW HERITAGE CENTRE and Family History Unit
Thanks to a generous local benefactor, the Society's Heritage Centre and Family History unit are located in the Merchant's House, Colyton. This is open from April to October. The society will always try to provide help for anyone wishing to research family history or any other aspect of Colyton's past.  Access to the Colyton library computers is available for examination of census records and parish registers. For further details please click the Family Research button on the menu.
