In 1086 Burstock was recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Burewinestock', meaning a farm ('stoc') owned by either 'Burgwine' (a man) or 'Burgwynn' (a woman). Before the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the mid 16th century, Burstock was closely associated with the Cistercian monks at nearby Forde Abbey; at Whetham, in the north of the parish, the abbey developed a mill, and in 1316 the Abbot became Burstock's lord of the manor.
