Wotton Under Edge there are three prehistoric barrows, all scheduled ancient monuments, in the parish, a long barrow and a round one near Symonds Hall farm and a round barrow on Blackquarries Hill, and a few finds have been made of worked flints and arrowheads. There is some evidence of human activity in the Roman period with finds in Tyley bottom and near Symonds Hall, but the only excavated Roman site within the parish is the Roman Villa at Wortley. The finds have been deposited at the District Museum in Stroud and should be displayed there when the new Museum opens in Stratford Park, Stroud, in 2001. The Roman Villa at Kingscote which was excavated in the 1970s is just outside the parish boundary.
The first recorded appearance of the town as such is to be found in a Saxon Royal Charter of King Edmund of Wessex, who in A.D.940 leased four hides of land in WUDETUN to the theign Edrick. The name Wudetun means the enclosure, homestead or village (tun) in or near the wood (wude). It is also known that Wudetun had a church at this time. After the Norman conquest the Domesday Book in 1086 describes Wotton under the name of Vutune as one of the 24 dependencies of the royal manor of Berkeley, ruled by the Lords of Berkeley.
The Berkeleys continued to rule the Manor of Wotton throughout the Middle Ages. During the reign of King John, possibly as a result of Thomas de Berkeley’s part in the barons’ revolt, Wotton’s Old Town (still so called) near the Parish Church, was allegedly burnt to the ground. However, by 1243 Thomas had built a manor house near the church and in 1252 his widow, Jone de Somery, having secured confirmation of the manor as part of her dower, established an annual fair and a weekly market. With the profits of these the market house and place were founded. In 1253 she granted a charter which gave the town the status and privileges of a Borough. The establishment of the borough meant that the inhabitants were able to earn their living in industry or commerce, free from the obligation of working on the Lord’s estate. Instead they paid rent for a burgage plot on which their homes and industries were located. Wotton is indebted to Jone for its form and layout, which shows signs of being an early experiment in town planning, with the streets laid out on a grid plan.
Jone completed her arrangements for the new borough some twenty years later when she agreed that the burgesses should submit a short list of three of themselves each year as candidates from which the lord of the manor would choose the mayor. The Mayor and twelve Aldermen of Wotton-under-Edge administered the town with the assistance of a Sergeant Mace Bearer and two Constables from 1273 until 1886. Then it had to surrender its powers to a larger authority, Dursley Rural District Council, because of its refusal to countenance a Workhouse within the parish, there being several groups of almshouses (and there was a small earlier workhouse at Potter’s Pond behind the Ram Inn, where the New Life church now is). The Local Government Act of 1894 restored Parish Councils as the smallest unit of local government and in 1973/4 the Wotton-under-Edge Parish Council recovered part of its former status by becoming a Town Council with a Town Mayor elected annually as its Chairman. The fine 18th century silver gilt mace which had been taken to Berkeley Castle for safekeeping in 1886 was returned to the town. Unfortunately the Mayor’s original chain of office could not be found but Mr John Pinch designed and made a very fine silver chain with a series of emblems relating to many aspects of the town. The town possesses a Coat of Arms, the shield and crest of which indicate Wotton’s past in the wool trade.
