Initially named Hurdwick, Tavistock Hundred was the name of one of 32 ancient administrative units of Devon, The parishes in the hundred were: Brentor, Milton Abbot and Tavistock. The town itself owes its origin to the foundation of the abbey in 961. From Henry I. the abbots obtained the entire jurisdiction of the hundred of Tavistock, with a weekly market. Among the famous natives of Tavistock are Sir John Glanville, judge under James I., William Brown, the author of Britannia's Pastorals, and Sir Francis Drake, of whom a colossal statue by Boehm was presented to the town by the Duke of Bedford in 1883.
