  PLYMSTOCK is a village and parish, in the hundred of Plympton, about three miles from Plymouth, having nothing remarkable attached to it on any head. Here is the parish church, and a methodist chapel; the living is a rectory, of which the Rev. Jas. Lambton Harris is the incumbent. The charities are a free-school, upon the national plan, and alms-houses for 12 poor parishioners. The entire parish contained, in 1821, 2,735 inhabitants, the greater number of whom are enployed in agriculture.

  YEALMPTON, a village and parish, in the smae hundred as Plymstock, is about six miles from Plymouth and the like distance from Modbury. There is nothing of note connected with this village or parish. The land is fertile, and in an improved state of agriculture; and there are some handsome seats in the neighbourhood, which conduce much to its ornament. A monthly cattle-market is held here on Wednesdays. The population of the parish, by the last returns, was 1,235.
