Municipal life in Tavistock

Trans. Devon. Assoc. Vol 21. (1889) pp. 305-311.


R.N. Worth

Prepared by Michael Steer

Tavistock traces its recorded history to at least AD 961 when Tavistock Abbey was founded. By 1185 it had achieved borough status and in 1295 became a parliamentary borough, sending two members to parliament. The abbey church was rebuilt in 1285. In 1305, with the growing importance of the area as one of Europe's richest sources of tin, Tavistock was one of the four stannary towns appointed by charter of Edward I, where tin was stamped and weighed and monthly courts were held for the regulation of mining affairs.
