Ancient Teignmouth

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 36, (1904). pp. 103-112.


W.C. Lake

Prepared by Michael Steer

The first record of Teignmouth, Tengemua, meaning mouth of the stream, was in 1044. Neither of its two original villages components separated by a stream, is mentioned in the Domesday Book, but East Teignmouth was granted a market by charter in 1253 and one for West Teignmouth followed a few years later. Teignmouth was a significant port by the early 14th century, second in Devon only to Dartmouth. It was attacked by the French in 1340 and sent seven ships and 120 men to the expedition against Calais in 1347. Its relative importance waned during the 15th century. The author also provides chronological tables of the Kings of England, and the Bishops of Exeter. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.

This rare book was produced from a copy held by the New York Public Library, and is available from the Internet Archive.
