Plympton: The borough and its charters

Trans. Devon. Assoc., vol. 19, (1887), pp. 191-216.

by

Joshua Brooking Rowe

Prepared by Michael Steer

The earliest surviving documentary reference to Plympton is as Plymentun in Anglo-Saxon charter S380 dated to around 900 AD. In 1216 William, the youngest son of Baldwin the Sheriff, 6th Earl of Devon, granted Plympton its first charter of incorporation. The Town was already sending two members to Parliament by 1295. In 1602, Elizabeth I granted the Town a Royal Charter which stated that 'the borough town of Earls Plympton should remain forever a free borough town with a corporation consisting of Mayor, Bailiff and Burgesses. As well as its focus on early charters, the paper presents the 1522 Lay Subsidy Roll and a complete list of Plympton's mayors (1602-1860).
