Afternoon Play – Cockington Court
Cockington has its origins as a settlement before the Norman Conquest. In the Domesday survey of 1086, it was held by William of Falaise and was a rich manor, holding land extending as far as the coast and worth 50 shillings annually. Later, the manor passed to the Fitz-Martin family who took the name ‘de Cockington’ and held the manor until 1375, when it passed to the Carys, many of whom held high office both regionally and nationally. In 1654, due to their support of the King in the Civil War, they were forced into selling the property to the Mallock family, merchants of Exeter. The Mallocks lived there until 1933, when the estate was sold to Torbay Borough Council. Cockington Court and its outbuildings are now used as offices, craft workshops and a venue for local recreational activities. The close proximity of a probable manorial chapel of the 12th century is unusual, as is the use to which it was put in the 18th and 19th centuries as a decorative feature within the gardens and landscape park surrounding the house.
