The place-name 'Marlston' is first attested as 'Marteleston' in 1242, and means 'Martel's town or manor'. Galfridus Martel held the manor in 1242; 'Martel' is a French nickname meaning 'hammer', from the Old French 'martel' (modern French 'marteau').
The area is the location of Brockhurst and Marlston House School, a large preparatory school.
