Christchurch began as a Saxon village. Its original name was Tweoxneam, which means between 2 rivers. The Saxon settlement stood on a triangular piece of land between the rivers. Early in the 10th century Christchurch was made a burgh or fortified settlement. (Alfred the Great created a network of fortified towns across his kingdom called burghs). Christchurch was defended by the sea on one side and by two rivers, the Stour and the Avon on the other two sides. (Both rivers had marshes along their banks, which made them even more effective barriers). The Saxons erected an earth rampart on the remaining side. It probably had a wooden palisade on top. If the Danes attacked men from all over the area would gather inside the burgh of Christchurch to fight.

The name of the settlement was changed to Christchurch when the church was built in the 11th century. According to legend St Catherines Hill was chosen for the site of a church. Each evening the builders would finish work but when they came back the next morning the building work was undone and the materials were moved somewhere else. One day a beam was cut too short and a stranger miraculously lengthened it. The builders decided the stranger must have been Jesus Christ so they moved the site of the church and changed the name of the town to Christchurch. At the time of the Domesday book Christchurch probably had a population of around 170, which made it a fairly large village for that time. Christchurch had one watermill, which ground grain to flour for the inhabitants. About 1094 the Normans built a priory (a small abbey) at Christchurch. There was also leper hostel in the Middle Ages, dedicated to St Mary Magdalene. About 1150 the Lord of the manor of Christchurch built a castle. He also built a house for the constable of the castle (The constable looked after the castle when the lord of the manor was absent).

Medieval Christchurch had a weekly market. In those days there were very few shops and if you wanted to buy or sell anything you had to go to a market. By the 12th century Christchurch also had an annual fair. In the Middle Ages a fair was like a market except it was held once a year and people would come from a wide area to buy and sell at one. From the 13th century there were 2 fairs in Christchurch. One was held in June, the other in October. To us Medieval Christchurch would seem very small. It probably had a population of less than 1,000 people. However in those days towns were usually very small. There were many fishermen in Christchurch in the Middle Ages. There were also a stocks and a ducking stool. This was a stool or chair on the end of a beam. A woman accused of scolding was tied to it then ducked in the river. The people of Christchurch had the right to graze their livestock on common ground near the town. However if they let an animal stray it was put in a pound and the owner had to pay a fine to get it back. From 1307 Christchurch sent 2 MPs to parliament. The number was reduced to 1 in 1832.
