Chard began as a Saxon settlement. By the time of the Domesday Book in 1086 Chard had a population of about 150. To us it would seem tiny but by the standards of the time it was a fairly large village. At the time of the Normans Chard was called Cerdre. In time its name changed to Cherdre then to Cherde and finally to Chard. Then in 1234 Bishop Jocelyn of Wells created a new town north of the village. In those days trade and commerce were increasing rapidly and many new towns were founded in England. The Bishop laid out streets and leased plots of land where men could build houses. Soon there were weekly markets in Chard and annual fairs. (In the Middle Ages fairs were like markets but they were held only once a year and they attracted buyers and sellers from a wide area). Since he owned the land the Bishop could make money by charging stallholders at both the market and the fairs.

By then Chard was a busy little town, though it only had a population of a few hundred. From day to day it was governed by a portreeve assisted by 2 bailiffs and between 1313 and 1328 Chard sent MPs to parliament. In the later Middle Ages, like many Somerset towns Chard became wealthy because of the wool trade. By 1394 there was a fulling mill in Chard. (Before wool could be woven it had to be cleaned and thickened. Beating it in water with wooden hammers did this. The hammers were worked by watermills). In time several more watermills were built in Chard. The Church of St Mary was built in the early 15th century.

In 1577 Chard suffered a disastrous fire, which destroyed many properties. Nevertheless the town soon recovered and continued to prosper. Chard was soon rebuilt. Waterloo House was built in Chard in the late 16th century. Chard also had a grammar school. In 1663 almshouses were founded in Chard due to the generosity of a merchant from Exeter named RiChard Harvey. Then in 1685 the Duke of Monmouth led a rebellion in Southwest England. Some men from Chard joined him and afterwards 12 men were executed in the town. However during the 18th century Chard was a small but prosperous market town.
