After the Norman invasion this area came within the domain of Tonbridge Castle, in part of its South Borough, one of four boroughs. Even at that early period, the area occupied by the present day town was a settlement of two halves. The western part was under the Manor of Southborough at Great Bounds, which was also the seat of the Manor of Bidborough. The eastern part was in the domain of the Manor of South Frith, later based at Somerhill. Architectural or documentary evidence from the fifteenth century indicates that farmsteads and hamlets were scattered in Vauxhall Lane, Pennington Road, Powder Mill Lane, London Road, Speldhurst Road and Holden and Modest Corners. The nearest churches & buildings which often provide a focal point for a settlement to grow - were at Bidborough or Tonbridge. But Southborough was not always notable for its tranquility. The constable of Southborough, one John Kipping, along with “all the people of the town”, is named in an official pardon of 1450 after Jack Cade’s Rebellion, a failed uprising against Henry VI.

In Tudor times a number of very distinguished people were Lords of the Manor of Southborough: Sir Thomas More, George Boleyn -Earl of Ormonde and brother of the Queen - and Henry Carey, son of George’s less well known sister Mary. He was later ennobled as Lord Hunsdon and appointed Lord Chamberlain. He became well known as Shakespeare‘s patron, giving his name to the theatre company the Lord Chamberlain’s Players. The Tudor period brought heavy industry, with iron manufacture along the river tributary between Vauxhall Lane and Powder Mill Lane. Several former farms of the Tudor period survive, of which the best known is the Weavers restaurant on London Road.F For much of the seventeenth century Southborough provided accommodation for holiday makers taking the waters at the Wells. Special attractions included Friday dance nights. The most notable visitor to Southborough was Charles II’s Queen Catherine, whose thirteen week visit to Bounds in 1663 is documented in the Royal Household’s financial archives.

From this period onwards Southborough was noted for its fine mansions, but sadly many have now disappeared under later housing development. Those surviving to the present day are seventeenth century Little Bounds, eighteenth century Holden House and nineteenth century Bentham Hill House, and Mabledon, both the work of Decimus Burton. Most unusual is Salomons, now part of the Christ Church Canterbury University campus. Its fine stable block, like a miniature chateau, was later the garage for some of the earliest cars in Britain. Sir David’s Science Theatre designed for musical and scientific functions is now used for many community, educational and private functions. For many centuries the people of the town were engaged in industries associated with agriculture, textiles and transport. Later industries included gunpowder production for several decades around the end of the eighteenth century. By the early nineteenth century cricket ball manufacture was a major source of employment, very fitting for a town where competitive cricket has been played on the present ground since at least 1794. Southborough began to change from a small scattered settlement on the outskirts of the ancient parish of Tonbridge to a village in its own right around the beginning of the nineteenth century.

With the opening of St Peter’s Church in 1830 Southborough became an independent ecclesiastical parish. The railway between Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, built in the 1840s, soon attracted commuters working in London, although the town had to wait half a century for its own station. Stretching beyond the growing numbers of cottages round the Common, houses and shops began to reach down London Road to link up with the settlement of Nonsuch Green near the present day Speldhurst Road junction. In the next few decades whole streets of new houses sprang up as large houses sold off their associated land. The changes began at the corner of London Road and Speldhurst Road, to be followed by development in the Park Road and Pennington Road area. Soon houses for all social classes were springing up all across Southborough. At the end of the nineteenth century brick making on an industrial scale in High Brooms was responsible for the development of that part of the town in only two or three decades. The number of places of worship, schools and places of work increased to cope with the needs of the burgeoning population. Over the time of Queen Victoria’s reign the small and scattered settlement which had existed for so many centuries had been transformed into a thriving town.
