Noss Mayo village, Devon

Noss Mayo is a village in southwest Devon, about 6 miles southeast of Plymouth. It lies about a mile inland, on the southern bank of Newton Creek, an arm of the estuary of the River Yealm. On the opposite, northern bank of the creek is Newton Ferrers, a slightly larger settlement. The population was 510 in 1991.

The first reference of Noss Mayo was in 1286 as Nesse Matheu. The manor here was held by Matheu son of John from 1284 to 1309. Noss Mayo was given by Edward II of England in 1287 to Mathew Fitzjohn of the manor of 'Stok'.

The village's church, dedicated to St. Peter, was built in 1882 by Edward Baring, 1st Baron Revelstoke (head of the family firm of Barings Bank) to a design by James Piers St Aubyn. It took over from the Church of St Peter the Poor Fisherman, Revelstoke which was built in 1226, on the coast just over a mile to the south.
