Ide (St. Ida)

IDE (St. Ida), a parish, in the union of St. Thomas, hundred of Exminster, Wonford and S. divisions of Devon, 1½ mile (S. W.) from Exeter; containing 795 inhabitants. It comprises, chiefly by measurement, 1461 acres, of which about one-third is pasture and orchard, and the remainder arable; the soil is principally a red sand, but partly clay. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £155; patrons and appropriators, the Dean and Chapter of Exeter. The present church, a neat plain structure, erected by subscription, was opened for divine service on the 13th April, 1834, and contains 530 sittings, of which 230 are free.
