In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described South Huish like this:

HUISH (SOUTH), a parish in Kingsbridge district, Devon; on the coast, 3¾ miles SW of Kingsbridge, and 12 S of Kingsbridge Road r. station. It includes the hamlets of Glampton, Silverhill, and Hope Cove; and its post town is Kingsbridge. Acres, 1, 150; of which 100 are water. Real property, with Malborough, £10, 705. ...

Rated property of S. H. alone, £1, 501. Pop., 346. Houses, 79. The property is divided among a few. The manor belongs to the Earl of Devon. An old castle, of which some remains exist, stood on the rocks near the sea, and is traditionally said to have been assailed by the parliamentarians in the civil war. The parish is a meet for the Malborough hounds. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the vicarage of West Alvington, in the diocese of Exeter. The church is ancient, but good; and comprises nave, S aisle, N transept, and chancel. There is a chapel for Plymouth Brethren at Glampton.
