Clannaborough is a parish in the county of Devon, England, situated about 5 1/2 miles north-west of the town of Crediton and 11 miles north-east of Okehampton. No village exists, only scattered farmhouses, including Clannaborough Barton and the bartons of Appledore and Walson, all three estates listed in the Domesday Book of 1066.[1] Walson was the birthplace of Christopher Lethbridge (d.1670), Mayor of Exeter in 1660, who was lord of the manor of nearby Bow (alias Nymet Tracy).[2] The parish church is dedicated to St Petrock.[3]
