The town of Kingsbridge formed around a bridge built in or before the 10th century between the royal estates of Alvington and Chillington, giving it the name of Kyngysbrygge ("King's bridge"). In 1219 the Abbot of Buckfast was granted the right to hold a market there, and by 1238 the settlement had become a borough. The manor remained in possession of the abbot until the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when it was granted to Sir William Petre. Kingsbridge was never represented in Parliament nor incorporated by charter, the local government being by a portreeve. It lay within the hundred of Stanborough.
