Manor History

It has been suggested that the name Devizes is a corruption of the Latin Ad DIVIAS - at the Division, the divisions being those of the three adjoining manors, Rowde, Cannings and Potterne, which met precisely at the point where the Castle was founded.          It is set right in the heart of Prehistoric England and as early as the 14th Century the town had become one of the principle trading centres of the West.          It is one of the oldest Boroughs in the county and, in all probability, owes its origin to the Castle built by Osmund, Bishop of Salisbury , about 1080. This castle, built of wood, was destroyed by fire in 1113 and was rebuilt in 1120 by Roger, Bishop of Salisbury, who was Chancellor and Treasurer to Henry I., and whose other castles were those of Old Sarum, Sherbourn and Malmesbury.          Henry of Huntingdon, writing of it twenty years later, describes it as "a noble castle .. of good strength and beauty .. the most splendid castle in Europe".          St. John's and St, Mary's churches were built by Bishop Roger, the former for the castle and garrison, the latter for the towns-people. Though contemporary, the plan of the two churches is distinct.          While St. Mary's from the beginning was "a ruder and simpler structure, furnished with the side aisles and adapted for a larger congregation, St. John's was evidently the object of more elabrate workmanship and of greater completeness in design". This observation applies to the two buildings only as they were left by the original architects, for both have undergone much transformation, and today the larger population is around St. John's with its new housing areas at Hillworth and Broadleas.      (source: Church booklet by The Revd. W. D. C. Williams, 1960's)

Twin Towns

Devizes Technically has no twin town - it has sextuplets.  As a commercial centre spreading its arms into the countryside around it fulfilled its tag of market town.  It has since then seen many a foreign visitor especially during the two World Wars since it was so near to many training camps and airfields for the allied and commonwealth soldiers and airmen that fought the cause so gallantly.          Therefore it is of no surprise that Devizes now extends its arms further afield to encompass friendship, trade and tourism through its twinning links with six towns throughout Europe and one in New Zealand.  The six are:- Mayenne probably the oldest of the twinned towns since Mayenne Place was built circa late 1950's early 1960's and was named after it.  Waiblingen is in Germany, Jesi is in Italy, Lesko is in Poland, Tornio is in Finland and finally Oamaru is on the North Island of New Zealand.  The latest town to be twinned with Devizes is Baja in Hungary.  To find out more about the twinning of these towns please visit the Devizes District Twinning Association               Twin Town Gallery

St. Mary's Independent Chapel (Northgate Street)

The original iron gates still exist and include the words "St Mary United Reform Church".  The first Pastor was Robert Sloper who was involved in the formation of the Chapel in 1776/77; his life and the history of the Chapel can be found by visiting  Devizes Heritage. The chapel is now  a private dwelling. 

The Independent Chapel, Northgate Street, (sometimes called St. Mary's Chapel) affords accommodation for 750 persons.  Minister Rev. William Kingsland.  Deacons Messrs. T. Baker, H. Cunningham, C. Gillman and Joseph Sloper, Jnr.. The Sunday School contains 250 children, under the instruction of 35 teachers; Superintendent Mr J. Sloper, Jnr.  Services are held on Sunday morning and evening and on Tuesday and Friday evenings.  The Chapel has recently undergone at a considerable cost an extensive series of repairs and improvements with the view of affording additional comfort and accommodation to worshippers.  [Gillman's Devizes Public Register, Business Directory & Almanac 1861.]

New Baptist Chapel

James Biggs, a Calvinistic Baptist, who had been a member of the Back Street Baptist Chapel in Trowbridge before studying at Bristol Academy became minister of the Presbyterian chapel in Devizes. Shortly after this, seceders from the Old Baptist chapel joined the Presbyterians for worship in their Sheep Street chapel and the establishment of the New Baptist Church can be dated from the pastorate of Biggs. In 1807 the two groups agreed to take communion together and in 1820 they became the 'United Society' although their home was still called the Presbyterian chapel.          The Baptists were growing in numbers and in 1848 the two groups formally united. In 1851 it was resolved to build a new chapel as a Baptist Church and invite the Presbyterians to occupy it. The chapel was opened in 1852, in Sheep Street next to the Presbyterian chapel, with seating for 700 and a schoolroom. This was during the pastorate of Charles Stanford who drew large congregations, including wealthy townspeople. He evangelized the area, introduced cottage preaching and later became a national Baptist leader. In 1851 the average congregation was 260 but on census Sunday there were 344 in the morning and 404 in the evening. By 1852 the congregation had doubled in size.          The old meeting house was demolished and the site added to the burial ground of the chapel. In 1874 the schoolrooms were enlarged and there were restorations of the chapel in 1901, when gas lighting was introduced, and in1927, when electricity was provided. The roof was re-slated in the 1960s and there were many improvements in the 1970s. In 1978 and 1988 the Baptist Housing Association built the adjacent flats, partly on church land. In 1989 a major improvement scheme was carried out. [Wiltshire Community History website.]

Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception R.C. Church

There were no known Roman Catholics in Devizes before 1767 when there were three.  By 1861 there were about 20 worshipping at Chippenham. The first Mass centre in Devizes was a disused warehouse in Monday Market Street under Father Larive, a Salesian missionary. This was served from Chippenham until 1864 and in 1865 the present church was opened.  At first it was an aisleless rectangular building of five bays which was restored in 1887.  In 1909 a chancel, sacristy and bell cote were added. From 1865 the Sisters of the teaching order of St. Joseph of Annecy had a school in the church and, by 1868, in a separate schoolroom.  Their convent is close to the church.  For further information visit Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Website                Our Lady Gallery

Society of Friends/Quakers (Sussex Wharf)

There were Quakers in the Devizes area in the 1650s and in 1658 Samuel Noyes, their leader, was prosecuted for 'brawling in church'. A burial ground was acquired in 1665, probably in Hillworth Park, where one existed in 1759. In 1669 there was a meeting in the house of John May with attendances of 80-100 people. By 1682 John Clark's house was licensed and others followed later. In 1702 a newly erected house at 23 High Street was certified for meetings and this became the sole meeting place. Anglicans and other nonconformist denominations helped in the building of this house. During the 18th century many leading families in the town were Quakers and the meetings were also attended by non Quakers. In the 1790s there were about 30 Friends and the meeting house remained in use until 1826. The meeting then lapsed and the house was sold in 1840. The meeting revived in 1853 and the old meeting house was re-purchased in 1858, remaining in use until the 1870s. The meeting was discontinued in 1879 and the house was again sold in 1884. It was re-occupied between 1903 and 1907 by a small number of Friends.  [Source: Wiltshire Community History website]
