Cheltenham began as a Saxon village. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) it was a small village with a population of less than 200. However Cheltenham became a focal point for the surrounding villages. In 1226 King Henry III gave the people of Cheltenham the right to hold a weekly market and an annual fair. (In the Middle Ages fairs were like markets but they were held only once a year. They attracted buyers and sellers from a wide area). However Cheltenham remained an agricultural settlement. Most of the people lived by farming. Furthermore Cheltenham was a small town with a population of only several hundred people in the Middle Ages. By the 17th century it had grown a little larger and may have had a population of about 1,500.
By then there was malting industry in Cheltenham (malt, made from barley is used in brewing). There was also a small leather industry and there were tanners, shoemakers and glovers in Cheltenham. Furthermore a grammar school opened in Cheltenham in 1578. Cheltenham was changed forever in the early 18th century when local people noticed pigeons pecking at salt deposits by a spring south of the town. People began to drink the water believing it would heal all kinds of illnesses. Before long the water was put on sale. In the years 1738-1742 the owner of the spring, a man named Henry Skillicone deepened the spring and turned it into a well. He built Assembly Rooms where people played cards and danced at balls. He also created an avenue of trees leading to the well.
Then in 1740 a man named Dr Short wrote a book in which he praised the water from Cheltenham’s well. That led to more visitors coming to Cheltenham. Furthermore Cheltenham became more popular still after the King George III visited in 1788. So many visitors came that there was a search for new well. A number of new spas were created between 1801 and 1825. These included Montpellier Spa with its magnificent gardens created after 1809 and Sherborne Spa which was created in 1818. Cheltenham itself grew rapidly. In 1801 it had a population of just over 3,000. That seems tiny to us but by the standards of the time it was a fair sized market town. However the population of Cheltenham exploded in the early 19th century. By 1851 the population of Cheltenham had reached 35,000 although population growth eased in the second half of the 19th century.
Many new buildings were erected in the early 19th century. Royal Crescent was built in the years 1806-1810. The Promenade was laid out as a tree lined walk in 1818 and it became built up in the 1820s. The Pittville Pump Room was built in 1830. Cheltenham College opened in 1841. Cheltenham Ladies College opened in 1854. As Cheltenham grew facilities improved. In 1786 a group of men called the Paving Commissioners was formed with powers to pave, clean and light the streets (with oil lamps). Then in 1813 a dispensary opened where the poor could obtain free medicines. From 1818 Cheltenham had gas light. A private company to supply piped water was formed in 1824. In 1834 a sewers company was formed. The paving commissioners bought it in 1857. However in 1877 Cheltenham was incorporated (given a corporation and mayor who replaced the paving commissioners). The new corporation bought the water company.
The public library in Cheltenham opened in 1889. Although they were created in 1825 the council obtained Pitteville Gardens in 1890. In 1892 they obtained Montpellier Gardens. Everyman Theatre was built in 1891. The famous statue of Neptune in Cheltenham was erected in 1893 and from 1895 Cheltenham had an electricity supply. In the later 19th century spas became much less important. However Cheltenham continued to be an important tourist destination and shopping centre. (Tourism was boosted when the railway came to Cheltenham in 1840). Cheltenham Art Gallery dates from 1899. The Museum began in 1907.
