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

CHIDEOCK, a parish in Bridport district, Dorset; on the coast, 2½ miles W of Bridport. It has a post office under Bridport town and r. station. Acres, , 052; of which 70 are water. Real property, with Stanton-St. Gabriel, £, 309. Pop., 794. Houses, 187. The property is divided among a few. ...

Chideock House is the seat of the Welds. A Roman road crosses the parish westwards; and a streamlet traverses a deep valley southward to the sea, near Down Cliffs. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Whitchurch-Canoni-curum, in the diocese of Salisbury. The church is pretty good; and there are chapels for Baptists and Roman Catholics.
