    The Pollard family of Waye and Horwood are recorded in the Visitation of Devon, 1572. The Pollards of Devon owned several estates around Plymouth and acquired Waye or Way, near Torrington, through marriage to the heiress of De la Way. In 1515 Sir Lewis Pollard was one of the Justices of the Common Pleas and he was responsible for establishing the family seat at King's Nympton. Arthur Pollard was the British Consul for Aleppo, Syria from 1751.
