The Muniments of the Corporation of Totnes, Part 1.

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 32, (1900), pp. 400-406.


E. Windeatt

Prepared by Michael Steer

By the 12th century, Totnes was an important market town, due to its position on one of the main roads of the South West, in conjunction with its easy access to its hinterland and the easy navigation of the River Dart. By 1523 it was the second richest town in Devon, and the sixteenth richest in England. In 1553, King Edward VI granted Totnes a charter allowing a former Benedictine priory building to be used as Totnes Guildhall and a school. In 1624, the Guildhall was converted to become a magistrate's court. It was also used as the town prison with the addition of prison cells, and remained a magistrate's court until 1974.
