Notes on the origin of the streets of Teignmouth and on their nomenclature

Trans. Devon. Assoc. Vol 22. (1890), illus. pp. 111-128.


W.C. Lake

Prepared by Michael Steer

In 1690, Teignmouth was the last place in England to be invaded by a foreign power. The town grew from a fishing port associated with the Newfoundland cod industry to a fashionable resort of some note in Georgian times, with further expansion after the opening of the South Devon Railway in 1846. Today, its port still operates and the town remains a popular seaside holiday location. Lake's paper (condemned by its author as "tedious, even wearisome"), attempts to reveal some of the town's history through an analysis of street nomenclature.
