Totnes & the civil war

Trans. Devon. Assoc., vol. 45, (1913) pp. 219-232.


Edward Windeatt

Prepared by Michael Steer

Totnes has a long recorded history, dating back to AD 907 when its first castle was built; it was already an important market town by the 12th century. Indications of its former wealth and importance are given by the number of merchants' houses built in the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1624, the Guildhall was converted and became a magistrate's court. Soldiers were billeted there during the Civil War and Oliver Cromwell visited for discussions with the general and parliamentary commander-in-chief Thomas Fairfax, 3rd Lord Fairfax of Cameron in 1646.
