Notes on the Early History of St Marychurch

Trans. Devon Assoc., Vol. 18, (1886), pp. 149-160.


The Very Rev. Canon Brownlow, MA

Prepared by Michael Steer


St Marychurch in Torbay is one of the oldest settlements in South Devon. Its earliest documentary record dates from around 1050 AD. Its name derives from the church of St Mary that was founded in Anglo-Saxon times. It is first mentioned during Bishop Leofric's occupation of the see of Exeter 1050-1072; in 1086 the Domesday Book recorded two manors at St Marychurch: The first held by Osbern Bishop of Exeter may be identified as that at Combe Pafford. The other, as St Marychurch proper, was held by one Richard son of Thorulf from its tenant-in-chief, the Count of Mortain.
