Notes on the State of Newton and its Neighbourhood Before the Fifteenth Century

Trans. Devon Assoc. vol. 18 (1886) pp. 184-196.


S.G. Harris

Prepared by Michael Steer

In the mid-1200s the New Town of the Abbots (from Torre Abbey) was given the right to hold a weekly market. By 1300 the original settlements were renamed, with the lower ground named Newton Abbot, and the higher ground Newton Bushel. On the strength of the market, Newton Abbot quickly became a thriving town and a good source of income to the Abbots. The twin markets of Newton Abbot and Newton Bushel continued until 1633, when they amalgamated to a single weekly market under the ownership of Bradley Manor.
