Salcombe is in  the parish of Malborough, is situated on an arm of the sea, which extends hence to Kingsbridge, about 5 miles northward; and is a navigable inlet of great importance to the adjacent places.


The harbour or bay is considered one of the finest in England, and the shipping has increased within the last four years from 40 to 80 sail; the principal exports being corn, cider, etc – and the imports, coal. The parish of Malborough is in the Kingsbridge Union and the resident population in 1831 was 1604.
