ST BUDEAUX

The name St Budeaux comes from Saint Budoc, the Bishop of Dol (Brittany). Around 480, Budoc is said to have founded a settlement and built a small church. The church eventually gave way to a permanent stone one, dedicated to Saint Budoc, which was erected shortly before the Norman conquest of England. 

The village is documented in William the Conqueror's Domesday Book of 1086. The modern name, St Budeaux, is itself a Frenchified "elegant" form. St Budeaux became a separate parish in 1482 by the decision of the Bishop of Exeter. During the early Tudor period demand grew for a larger church, which was completed in 1563. The church was described in 1804 as "a simple edifice, and, though devoid of architectural embellishment, possesses much picturesque beauty." On 4 July 1569, Sir Francis Drake married local woman Mary Newman (Lady Drake was buried there in 1582). 

Today, St Budeaux includes a Catholic church, a Methodist church, a Baptist church and two Church of England churches. It also has a public library, three pubs, four primary schools and two railway stations, although the village does not have its own secondary school. Most of the main shops including a KFC outlet, are situated in St Budeaux Square which is adjacent to Wolseley Road. Most children of secondary school age in the area attend Marine Academy Plymouth in the nearby ward of King's Tamerton or bus to one of the residual grammar schools or one of the many other community colleges. 

While the official boundaries of the ward itself cover approximately 5 square kilometers, St Budeaux is often considered to include the neighbouring wards of Weston Mill, Barne Barton and Kings Tamerton. Property in the area varies in age, with examples from the Victorian/Edwardian period, right up to examples from the 1990’s. The A38 Devon Expressway, to the north of the suburb, delivers easy access, in and out of the City of Plymouth
