Originally two Manors of Wolborough and Teignwick developed off the River Lemon, and later Schirebourne Newton became absorbed into Newton Bushell. On the other side of the River Newton Abbot prospered under the control of the Abbots and the manors all benefited from the two markets held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays that had been granted under Charters, added to the importance of the wool trade in the area.
