Wootton Courtenay. A 3d image.

William the Conqueror gave Wootton Courtenay to William of Falaise after the Conquest.

In the 13th century the manor passed on to John de Courtenay, whose family later became earls of Devon and gave their name to both manor and parish.

The church of All Saints has a 13th century west tower, finished off by a saddleback roof dated 1866. The remainder, including the octagonal font, is mainly 15th century but, in common with most Somerset churches, was drastically restored in the 19th century.
