Poltimore is a village, civil parish and former manor in Devon, England. It lies approximately 5mi northeast of Exeter. Poltimore consisted of 122 households and a population of 297 people during the 2011 census. It also includes the hamlet of Ratsloe.HistoryTwo manors were recorded at Poltimore in the Domesday Book completed 1086: the main one was owned by Haemeric (or Haimer) de Arcis, an officer in the army of William the Conqueror; and a smaller one, Cutton, belonging to the Canons of St. Mary at Rouen.The name of the village itself likely comes from Old Welsh, Pwlltymawr, which translates to "The Pool by the Great House" (Pwyll: pool; Ty: house; Mawr: great). The de Pultymor family, who owned the Manor of Poltimore in the 13th century, also had a residence called Poltymore in Glamorgan, South Wales. The Devon village was also spelled Poltymore, and the family's name subsequently evolved to de Poltymore, de Poltimore and of Poltimore.Historically Poltimore formed part of Wonford Hundred. The manor appeared and is the historic seat of the Bampfylde family. The baronetcy, created for Sir John Bampfylde, 1st Baronet in 1641, takes its name from the village. The manor was rebuilt into Poltimore House, likely by Sir Coplestone Bampfylde, 2nd Baronet (1636-1691). The date 1681 is carved on the stone gate at the main entrance to the house.
