HIGHAMPTON, in the hundred of Black Torrington and deanery of Oakhampton, lies four miles from Hatherleigh.
The manor was successively in the families of Moels, Filleigh, Holway, and Cary. It was afterwards in the Walters, whose heiress, in the seventeenth century, brought it in marriage to the ancestor of John Morth Woollcombe, Esq., the present proprietor.

NOTE: Most propenents of this line for the ancestry of the Beaumonts of Devon, have the family at Highampton during this period. The above reference does not support it. I believe that they were always of Shirwell, but I will leave the references to Highampton in my line.
