The earliest settlement at Dawlish grew up almost a mile away from the coast, around the area where the parish church is today. The land that includes present-day Dawlish was granted by Edward the Confessor to Leofric, later the first Bishop of Exeter, in 1044. After the Norman Conquest, Leofric gave the land to the Diocese of Exeter, which held it until it was sold, in 1802. The charter explaining this donation is in the archives of Exeter Cathedral and is well preserved. Much of it was written in Latin, although the boundaries of the land donated were given in English (Anglo-Saxon). This is the oldest record of Dawlish in history. The parish church of St Gregory has a mediaeval tower, the rest of the church was rebuilt in 1824 by Andrew Pateym with alterations of 1873-5.
