Carterton may well have seen earlier settlements than our recent town. Bronze age flint tools have been found in the area and a round barrow, now levelled, suggests that there may have been an Iron Age settlement near the crossroads. Roman settlements have been found at Alvescot and Kencot. Much of what is now the northern part of the town was owned by the Moleyns family from at least 1369, but in 1429 William Lord Moleyns was killed at the siege of Orleans and the land passed to the Hungerford family. During the mediaeval period the main road through Carterton was one of the most important in the country, taking trains of packhorses laden with Cotswold wool over Radcot Bridge and on to Southampton for export to the weaving centres of Europe.
In the 1770s the land was acquired by the Duke of Marlborough. Rock Farm was built in about 1823 as a typical Georgian farm complex, with a yard in front and two matching threshing barns, one of which is now the Catholic Church, pictured on the right. The pattern of the present settlement dates from 1894 when part of the estate was sold to Homesteads Limited whose director was William Carter.
The land was divided into plots of 6 acres and sold for 20 an acre with bungalows costing from 120. Many of the settlers were retired soldiers and refugees from the towns. Carterton soon made its name in the market gardening world. Black grapes from Frenchester Nurseries and the famous Carterton tomatoes were sold at Covent Garden Market. There are still a few of the original tin or asbestos settlers bungalows in the town. The village flourished, with a tin mission church and the first large building The Emporium being built in 1911 with an upstairs room for meetings and dances. This later became the Co-op, then The Golden Eagle, and is now Ye Olde Aviator. With the growth of the village, the small mission church at the central crossroads was replaced in 1963 by the church of St. John the Evangelist. The link with the mother church of St. Marys at Black Bourton was kept alive by the donation of one of the bells from the tower. This was made by H. Knight of Reading and is dated 1619.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
