Bishops Waltham began as a Saxon village. The name Bishops Waltham is derived from the words Wald meaning wooded area and ham meaning settlement. It became known as Bishops Waltham after 904 when the king gave the manor to the Bishop of Winchester. A church was built in Bishops Waltham around 640 AD. In the year 1001 Danes descended on Bishops Waltham and burned it but it was soon rebuilt. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) Waltham probably had a population of about 450. By the standards of the time it was a large village. Most only had a population of 100-150. Bishops Waltham had 3 watermills, which ground grain into flour to make bread for the inhabitants. By the late 13th century a weekly market was held in Bishops Waltham. However it was still a large village rather than a town. It was an agricultural settlement rather than a manufacturing centre. However there was a small wool industry in Bishops Waltham. By the 15th century there was a fulling mill. After wool was woven it was pounded in a mixture of water and clay to clean and thicken it. Wooden hammers worked by a watermill pounded the wool. This process was called fulling. About 1138 the Bishop built a palace at Bishops Waltham. In 1182 it was used as a meeting place when Henry II met his barons. In 1194 Richard the Lionheart stayed there. William of Wykeham the founder of Winchester College died there in 1404.

The Crown Inn in Bishops Waltham dates from the 16th century. In 1602 Queen Elizabeth granted the right to hold two annual fairs in Bishops Waltham. In those days fairs were like markets but they were held only once a year. Buyers and sellers would come from all over Hampshire to attend the Bishops Waltham fairs. By the end of the 18th century the number of fairs had increased to 4 but they all died out by the late 19th century. In the 1540s a writer described Bishops Waltham as 'a pretty town' It had 'good pasture, wood and corn. Here the Bishop of Winchester has a right ample and good manor'. In April 1644 during the English civil war 200 royalists were besieged in the Bishops Palace for 3 days. They were then forced to surrender. Afterwards, in 1645 Cromwell ordered the 'slighting' or destruction of the palace. In 1679 a grammar school was founded in Bishops Waltham. Vernon Hill House dates from the late 17th or early 18th century (the exact date is not known). It takes its name from Admiral Edward Vernon (1684-1757). During the 18th century Bishops Waltham continued to be a small but prosperous settlement.

In 1933 the Saxon font of Bishops Waltham church was discovered. It now stands in St Peters Church. In the 1950s Bishops Waltham was called a 'dying town' but it soon returned to life. Bishops Waltham grew rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s and some historic buildings were demolished to make way for new car parks and housing. In 1960-62 Bishops Waltham gained main drainage.
