About Dunterton

Dunterton, nestling in the Tamar Valley, is a very ancient parish. In the Domesday Book it appears as Drondritona – the name is thought to mean a fort guarding the river.
It belonged then to Baldwin. The Book mentions that Cadio, a tenant, had six villeins, three borders and a serf. He had four acres of wood, twenty acres of meadow and as many of pasture. It was all worth twenty-four shillings and the Domesday Book notes sternly that it was worth 30 shillings when Baldwin received it.
Dunterton changed hands many times over the next few centuries.

The church, which is unusually not in the village, but in a field off the road, is dedicated to All Saints. The south aisle is probably fourteenth century, and the chancel and nave rather later. In the west tower are the old stocks.

The population of Dunterton now is around 30 people. Many of the old cottages have disappeared, and there are several houses unoccupied.
But the inhabitants remain true to their agricultural tradition. Most of the residents are still farmers in the area.

On Friday, October 31st 1837, there was an earthquake in Dunterton.
‘Immediately after the shock a slight breeze sprang up. The shock was traced no further than Launceston on the north, and Tavistock to the south east.’
