The village stands at the head of a branch of the Hamoaze, called St. John's lake, opposite Devonport town and r. station, and 5½ miles SE by E of St. Germans. The parish extends to the English Channel; and comprises 698 acres of land, and 125 of water. Post town, Devonport. Real property, £1, 094. Pop. in 1851, 155; in 1861, 213. Houses, 38.
