Barton and St Marychurch are adjacent areas of Torquay. ( A long way from North Devon!)

Does it read " South ditto (Devon), Barton St Marychurch"

From Gro Index. Alfred Dennis. Dec 1853. Newton Abbot. Mmn Veal (Newton Abbot Reg District for Torquay)

The "Ditto" could refer to either Devon or Littleham. However if Barton is South Devon then I'd guess it refers to Devon. Difficult to tell and I don't know the area at all.
 
Place of birth is not always accurate on census, some put where they were living not born and registration regions varied over the years.
