THURSHELTON, or Thrushelton, a scattered parish, 10 miles S.W. by W. of Okehampton, is in Tavistock union, rural deanery, and county court district, Lifton petty sessional division and hundred, Lew Down polling district of South Devon, and Totnes archdeaconry. It had 448 inhabitants (244 males, 204 females) in 1871, living in 96 houses; the area is 3714 acres, generally having a fertile soil, resting on clay, limestone, and manganese. John Tremayne, Esq., M.P., is lord of the manor of Canonbarn; and he and T. G. Newton, Esq., are the principal owners of the soil. The Church (St. George) is a plain Perpendicular structure, consisting of nave, with south aisle, chancel with aisle, south porch, and an embattled tower at the west end. There is a piscina in the south wall of the chancel, and another in the chancel aisle. The church is seated to hold 150 people. The living is a curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Marystowe, in the gift of John Tremayne, Esq., the impropriator of the tithes, which were commuted in 1839 — the rectorial for £l30, the vicarial for £109 a year. The Rev. H. B. Grylls is the vicar. The Wesleyans have a chapel here. The parishes of Lew Trenchard and Thrushelton are united as a School district, and there is a joint School at Lew Cross; Letters by foot post, via Lew Down; but Lifton is the nearest Money Order Office.
