Robertsbridge is a village in East Sussex and has its origins in the 12th century when Cistercian monks founded an abbey there. One of the abbots, possibly Robert de Martin, had a bridge built (Pons Roberti in Latin, so Robert’s bridge) and the bridge appears on a seal from the abbey in the 13th century. In the 13th century Robertsbridge was granted a charter to hold a weekly market, and the townspeople became prosperous. This can be seen by the presence in the village today of half-timbered houses built during the 14th through to the 17th centuries. In the 18th century Rothersbridge would have seen a few smugglers in its taverns, as the infamous Hawkshurst gang was operating in the area.
