Dartmouth St Saviour

Primary tabs

"St. Saviour's Church is an ancient and spacious structure, said to have been consecrated in 1372. It has a plain embattled tower, and the interior has a splendid screen, and several handsome monuments. In the chancel is the tomb of the before-named John Hawley, with effigies of himself and his two wives on brass plates. The altar-piece is a fine large painting of "Christ; raising the widow's son," by Brockedon, a native artist, who presented it to the church. The door within the porch is covered with curious iron ornaments, and seems to be coeval with the building." [From White's Devonshire Directory (1850)]

A parish within the seaport, market town and borough of Dartmouth, in Coleridge Hundred, the Archdeaconry of Totnes and the Diocese of Exeter, that had 1671 inhabitants in 1801. Technically this is a chapelry of Dartmouth Townstall, but in practice it is the major parish.
