This area's name was written as Rode in the 11th century, and Rowde in the 13th century. It was part of a free manor owned by Alnod in the time of King Edward. In 1086, it was owned by Gozelin, son of Azor. There were a number of small estates that were part of Rode, including those of Azor, Sawin and Nigel. By the end of the 13th century it was owned by the Lisle family of Wootton.

In 1378, it was recorded as having 72 taxpayers. When Sir John Lisle died in 1523, it became part of the Wootton estate. Later, it was owned by both the Pike and Bonham families. In 1910, the Roud estate was sold to the Isle of Wight County Council by Mr. Arthur Atherley, and was broken up into smaller properties.
