Wisbech began as a Saxon village. In the 6th century the Saxons invaded eastern England. They drove their way across the country and they founded a settlement at Wisbech. Its name may mean the bank (bec) by the marshy meadow (Wisc). By the time of the Domesday Book (1086) Wisbech was a large village. It probably had a population of about 350. By the standards of the time Wisbech was quite a large village. A typical village had only 100 or 120 inhabitants. In the village of Wisbech some of the men were fishermen and some were farmers.
In 1069 the Normans built a castle at Wisbech. At first it was of wood but was later rebuilt in stone. In 1487 it was replaced by a bishop’s palace. (The bishop of Ely was lord of the manor of Wisbech).
In the Middle Ages (probably in the 12th century) a weekly market began in Wisbech. In those days there were few shops and anyone who wanted to buy or sell anything had to go to a market. The Bishop of Ely was the Lord of the Manor of Wisbech and he had the right to charge stallholders tolls. The market was originally held on Old Market, as the name suggests but by the 13th century it had switched to the street named Market Place. Then in 1190 Richard I gave Wisbech a charter, a document granting the townspeople certain rights and in 1392 a grammar school was founded in Wisbech.
Wisbech was a busy little port. In those days it was only 4 miles from the sea whereas today it is more than 11. However officially Wisbech was part of the port of Lynn. Wisbech had a population of, at most, 1,000 in the Middle Ages so it was a small and relatively unimportant town. Moreover in 1236 there was a disastrous flood in Wisbech which killed many people.
During the 16th century the population of Wisbech continued to grow slowly. It may have reached 1,500 by 1600. But Wisbech only really began to grow rapidly from the mid-17th century when the Fens were drained. The newly claimed farmland was very fertile. Agricultural products such as grain, butter and rape-seed oil were exported from Wisbech to London.
In 1549 Wisbech was incorporated. That is, it was given a corporation and a mayor. The corporation could own property, sue people and make by-laws.
However like all towns in those days Wisbech suffered from outbreaks of the plague. There was a severe outbreak of plague in Wisbech in 1587.
During the civil war between king and parliament (1642-1646) Wisbech was in the centre of the parliamentary area. Although earthwork defences were built around the town Wisbech escaped fighting. However in 1655 Wisbech suffered another severe flood.
