The origins of Shepshed are not clear. It is possible that it first developed as a Saxon settlement. By the time of the Domesday Survey in 1085-86 it was recorded as a settled manor covering two and a half hides and four plough lands. A small mill and some woodland were also recorded. The Domesday Book provides the earliest known spelling of Shepshed as Scepeshefde, which went through various alterations (1539: Sheppishede, 1633: Sheapshead, 1664: Sheapshead) before arriving at its present version in 1888. It is generally believed that the name translates as a hill where sheep graze and the early prosperity of Shepshed was principally based on the wool industry and its role as a market place. Even as late as 1811 Nichols notes that a great number of sheep were raised on Charnwood Forest chiefly for their wool. Whites Directory of 1846 refers to the Forest as chiefly stocked with Forest sheep, a small breed now nearly extinct.
The early medieval development of the town appears to have been based upon agriculture, most likely pastoral farming associated with the rearing of sheep for their wool linked to the Cistercian Abbey at Garendon, since according to Fussell (1948) the ground is generally hard and barren and difficult to produce crops from, so arable farming is unlikely to have been a mainstay of the economy. In 1133 a Cistercian monastery was founded by Robert de Bossu, Earl of Leicester at Garendon Abbey, who gifted land at Garendon, Dishley and Shepshed, along with rights to use his woods in Charnwood. Over time the Abbey was gifted or acquired other land so that by 1536 it had over 300 acres in Charnwood (Wallace, 1982). From the last quarter of the 12th century Garendon Abbey appears to have begun large scale sheep farming using an agricultural system based on the establishment of granges (essentially large farm omplexes). By 1535 Garendon had 16 such granges staffed by lay brothers and by local labour.
It is therefore likely that this pastoral farming would have been an important source of employment for many local people, lasting until the dissolution of the Abbey in 1536 when it passed to Thomas Manners, Earl of Rutland. Wool was an important commodity; fleeces were sold to Bradford wool merchants and the Abbey had permission to export wool to Flanders. The presence of Grange Farm on Forest Street suggests a direct link to the Cistercians. In addition to the wool trade, Shepshed appears to have been a local market centre, selling produce from the local villages and possibly from the Abbey granges. Many inns grew up around Market Place to offer refreshment and accommodation to travellers and visitors to the market.
