The foundation and early history of Dartmouth and Kingswear churches

Trans. Devon. Assoc. 43, (1911). illus. pp.149-165.


E. Windeatt

Prepared by Michael Steer

The first documentary mention of Kingswear was c.1170 when William de Vinci gave the local church half of the land in the village. After the murder of Beckett in 1170, Canterbury became a place of pilgrimage. Pilgrims travelling by sea from further west, and from Brittany, were known to use Kingswear as a landing place. The current church was built, and dedicated to St Thomas, as a staging point on the pilgrim route. The church was rebuilt in 1847. By 1365 a ferry was operating from Kittery Point, the western most tip of Kingswear, to Dartmouth. In 1864 the Dartmouth and Torbay Railway reached Kingswear, providing connections to Exeter and London.
