Buckland had the latter part of its name from its monastery, and is sometimes called Buckland Drake from the Drake family, who have held the manor since the reign of Elizabeth. Its parish contains 1411 inhabitants, and 6383 acres of land, including about 2000 acres of open moorland, woodland, &c.; the romantic hamlet of Milton, and a great part of the large village of Horrabridge, which is partly in the parishes of Sampford-Spiney, Whitchurch, and Walkhampton; being on both sides of the small river Walkham, and on the eastern side of Dartmoor, where there are two copper mines and a tin mine, employing 400 hands, and a woollen factory, employing about the same number.


The parish comprises also many scattered farm-houses, &c., and several neat mansions, and is bounded on the west by the river Tavy and traversed on the east by Plymouth and Dartmoor Railway. A cattle fair is held in the village on Trinity Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and it had formerly a weekly market on Tuesday granted to one of the abbots in 1317."
