South Molton originated in early Saxon times, the area being occupied from about 650AD. The Domesday Book (1086) showed the settlement to be of some importance with 4 priests recorded. The town originated around the church and in the Middle Ages a square was laid out as a new market place. Gilbert de Turberville created the borough in about 1150. There exist two Royal Borough Charters, one granted by Elizabeth I in 1590 and the second by Charles II in 1684. These are commemorated each year with an Olde English Fair.
