In 1086, the town was known as Ashby. This is an Anglo-Danish word that means “Ash-tree farm” or “Ash-tree settlement.” The Norman French name extension dates from the years following the Norman conquest of England, when Ashby was acquired by the La Zouche family during Henry III’s reign.
The castle at Ashby de la Zouch was built in the 12th century. The Hastings family took control of the town and castle in 1464, and William Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings fortified it beginning in 1473. During the English Civil War, the town was one of the Cavaliers’ main garrisons, commanding the North Midlands Army under Colonel Henry Hastings, 1st Baron Loughborough. When the town fell after a long siege in March 1646, the surrounding towns and villages rejoiced.
During the First World War, a German enemy Zeppelin flew over the town.
Many of the structures on Market Street, the town’s main thoroughfare, are made of wood. The majority of this structure is hidden behind later brick facades. The Bull’s Head public house still has its original Elizabethan half-timbering, though most of it has been plastered over and is no longer visible from the street. A short distance down Market Street is a shop that is currently occupied as a LOROS Charity Shop and still has its original Elizabethan timbers visible from the street. This street is also lined with Regency-style buildings. Rawdon Terrace, a row of Classical-style houses on Bath Street, dates from the 1820s, when the town was a spa destination.
