In 1086, the date of the Doomsday Survey, the manor of Stratfield Turgis (listed as Stradfelle) was held by Aluric from Hugh de Port ("TERRA HVGONIS DE PORTH ... Ipse H ten. STRADFELLE et Aluric de eo . Aluric tenuit de rege E ...").  The overlordship continued with the de Ports and their descendants, the St. Johns, for a considerable time.

The Celtic tribe of the Atrebates, in about the year 300B.C., occupied the area that is today equivalent to North Hampshire, in which Stratfield Turgis is situated.

The original proposed route of the canal went to Turgis Green.
