Put simply, the C of E is the established church and parishes relate to C of
E churches - not to Wesleyan or other chapels (nor Catholic churches).
However, when you joined the list you would have received a welcome message
with the URL for the Devon Genuki pages - it really is worth reading though
the relevant items. If you have accidentally deleted the welcome message, go
to www.genuki.org.uk and navigate the links to Devon.
On the main Devon page under 'Church Records' you will find a link to Arthur
French's explanation of parishes -
http://www.cs.ncl.ac.uk/genuki/DEV/DevonMisc/ParishNotes.html - read, print
Then, at the foot of the main page you will see 'Individual Towns and
Parishes'. Click on 'alphabetical listing', then on 'P', ...off you go!
