Huntsham is a small village and civil parish, formerly a manor and ecclesiastical parish, in the Mid Devon district of Devon, England. The nearest town is Tiverton, about 5.8 miles (9.3 km) south-west of the village. The parish is surrounded clockwise from the north by the parishes of Bampton, Hockworthy, Uplowman and Tiverton; it is bounded on the east by the River Lowman and by a minor road on Bampton Down to the north west, where it reaches a maximum height of 914 feet (279 m). In 2001 the population of the parish was 138, down from 222 in 1901.

Huntsham is part of the Diocese of Exeter, and is served by All Saints church,[4] which was restored by Benjamin Ferrey. Near to the church is the former manor house, Huntsham Court, which was built by Ferrey in 1868–70 and is now a Grade II* listed building. Many of the buildings in Huntsham village were built to service the house at the turn of the 20th century.

Tithe Map

The tithe maps and apportionments are an important source of information about the history and topography of a parish. They provide details of land ownership and occupation, and the type of cultivation of the land, and are often the earliest complete maps of parishes.
