Tonbridge is a market town in Kent, England, on the River Medway, 4 miles north of Royal Tunbridge Wells, 29 miles south east of London. In the administrative borough of Tonbridge and Malling, it had an estimated population of 41,293 in 2018.

The town was recorded in the Domesday Book 1087 as Tonebrige. This may indicate a bridge belonging to the estate or manor (from the Old English tun), or alternatively a bridge belonging to Tunna, a common Anglo-Saxon man’s name. Another theory suggests that the name is a contraction of “town of bridges”, due to the large number of streams the High Street originally crossed.

Until 1870, the town’s name was spelt Tunbridge, as shown on old maps including the 1871 Ordnance Survey map and contemporary issues of the Bradshaw railway guide. In 1870, this was changed to Tonbridge.  Wikipedia
