  Or Nymet-Tracy, is a small market-town and parish, in the parish of North Tawton; about 10 miles from Oakhampton, and the little distance from Chumleigh. It is a place of very little trade; and, excepting the extensive tanning concern of Mr. Sanders, which employs many hands, is not worth being visited by the commercial traveller. The municipal officer here is a portrieve, elected by the jurymen of the court leet and baron, held annually in October, under the lord of the manor, Sir T.B. Lethbridge, Bart. of Sandyhill park, Somerset. The church, which is a plain brick building, is situated about a mile from the town; the Rev. William Hellins is the present officiating minister. The only place of worship in the parish, besides, is a meeting-house for the independent methodists. The market-day is Thursday; and the fairs are Holy Thursday, and the 22nd November, for cattle. The parish contained, by the last returns, 872 inhabitants.
