The community was named after Martock House which was the original estate in the area. The Georgian style mansion was built circa 1790 and originally boasted more than 4,000 acres (16 km2) of land. Col. John Butler of England was the builder and original owner. Col. Butler named Martock House for Martock, Somerset, England, his birthplace.   The home was owned by the Sweet family through much of the 19th and all of the 20th century. In 2003, Ernest E. M. Sweet sold the home to its current owner, Dr. Yeadon, formerly of Halifax's west end.
The area is about 70 kilometers from Halifax.
