The Borough of Epsom is in the county of Surrey, fifteen miles to the southwest of the centre of London. The Borough shares borders with Mole Valley District Council and Reigate and Banstead Borough Council to the south, as well as the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames to the north, and the London Borough of Sutton to the east. The origins of the name 'Epsom' are open to debate. The most widely accepted theory is that it derives from Ebbi's ham (Ebbisham); Ebbi being a Saxon woman and 'ham' meaning village or small town. The name "Ewell" comes from the Old English "Aewiell", meaning "the spring at the head of the river".

Little is known about the earliest settlement of Epsom but Toland reported that an "Abundance of wrought stone, of Roman bricks and tiles are often dug up about (Epsom Court)" which suggested that a Roman villa had once stood on the site occupied by that old farm. Certainly, Stane Street crossed the district on its way from the Downs to Ewell and, in particular, has been identified by excavation behind St Martin's Church. This edifice stands on a chalk knoll from which a spring once issued and, because sweet water meant life, the place is likely to have become a sacred site dedicated to some Roman deity (in common with Ewell where votive offerings have been found). C. J. Swete, in his Handbook of Epsom, published 1860, suggested that the name Ebbisham (and its variants) was derived "from the presence of a remarkable intermitting spring...called the 'Earthbourne' which there gushes and flows and then disappears. 'Ebbe', the Saxon word for 'ebb' (recessus aquarum) and 'ham', a village being the foundation for the name." The Venerable Bede, in Historia Ecclesiastica, explains that when Mellitus, later Archbishop of Canterbury, was sent by Gregory the Great to England in 601, Pope Gregory advised him to incorporate, where possible, pagan monuments into the fabric of church buildings.

The policy set by St. Augustine in the 6th century would explain the development of Christian worship on the spot where the later parish church now stands. Swete also tells us that princess Ebba received her baptismal title, in 660, from Bishop Wilfred with reference to "this gushing spring". A Saxon brooch found at Epsom and dated to the 7th century was lodged at the British Museum. (Described in Epsom, A Pictorial History as 'A gold mount ornamented with beadwork surrounds a garnet cameo carved with the bust of a bearded man: one of the three kings, perhaps, imported from the east. The jewel is Mediterranean, the setting is native work'.) In a History of Surrey, W.E. Brayley provides an alternative name, "Earth Bore", but mentions that it flowed for several months before ceasing, implying a "Winterbourne", dry over the summer. As late as 1690 the channel remained wide enough to require a bridge "in the place leading to the church" although, in 1711, Toland is found referring to "now uncertain springs in Church Street".
