Southam or Suham in the Domesday Book developed on high ground rising from the Stowe Valley. Roman coins have been found in the area, but the Manor of Southam was first mentioned in 998 when King Ethelred granted it, together with the Haliwell’, to the Priory of Coventry. Thus until the Reformation, Southam had a strong connection with Coventry. The Haliwell’, now known as the Holy Well, is the oldest surviving structure in Southam, situated near the river about half a mile west of the town. The principal reasons for Southam’s development were its location on the east-west drovers’ road and the north-south Coventry to Oxford road, and its ownership by the Priory. The small medieval settlement to the east of the church was soon enlarged by development north-south.
In 1227 the Prior obtained a stature allowing Southam a weekly market, thereby giving it town status. Later, permission was also granted for a monthly market and four fairs which increased the size of the community with inns and trades connected with livestock. Southam became an important stagecoach stop with many hostelries catering for this trade, and a tannery existed until 1821. The town was encompassed by 13,000 troops in 1642 when Royalist and Parliamentary forces skirmished in the area. Later, King Charles I stayed in the Manor House (now Southam Pharmacy). Owing to its market town status, the Magistrates Court for the area and also the Union Workhouse were located in Southam. Much of medieval Southam was destroyed in four disastrous fires in the 1740s when 30 houses were burnt. Small cottages and several three-storey Georgian houses replaced these.
In 1818, Mr Lilley-Smith, a local surgeon founded the Eye and Ear Infirmary, now the Stoneythorpe Hotel. In 1823 he also founded the country’s first free dispensary nearby. Philanthropy also inspired some German Sisters to found a Roman Catholic orphanage and school in 1876 – the latter is still one of the town’s three primary schools. The secondary school, Southam College was built in 1957. Southam’s first gas supply came in 1853 and electricity was supplied in 124. Later in the 1960s natural gas arrived. The Holy Well and other springs were used for water until mains water supplies were connected in the 1920s. St James’ thirteenth century church was pre-dated by a Saxon one, possibly a wooden structure. During the nineteenth century, and independent chapel was built in Pendicke Street, and also the Congregational church in Wood Street. The Catholic church existing today was built in 1925.
