Cerden was the name of the town in 1065, and Cerdre was the name of the town in the Domesday Book of 1086. Immediately following the Norman Conquest, the Bishop of Wells was appointed as ruler of Chard. In 1234, the town received its first charter from King John of England. During the English Civil War, the town was further decimated by fire, which caused most of the damage in 1577. Harvey's Hospital was founded in 1663 by Richard Harvey of Exeter, who left a bequest to the city. It was at this town that the fictitious Duchess of Monmouth was proclaimed King just before his defeat on Sedgemoor during the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685. In the aftermath of his trial by Judge Jeffreys, Chard stood by and observed the execution and treasonous death of 12 convicted insurgents, who were hanged at the contemporary Tesco roundabout. The Chard Canal, formerly known as the Tub Boat Canal, was constructed between 1835 and 1842. Construction of the Chard Branch Line, which passed through Chard until 1965, was begun in 1860 to connect the main lines of the London and South Western Railway with the main lines of the Bristol and Exeter Railway.
In the town of Fore Street, there is a creek that runs down both sides of the street, which is an unusual feature. One stream is sent to the Bristol Channel, while the other is delivered to the English Channel. Chard Reservoir, located about a mile north-east of town, is a Local Nature Reserve, and Snowdon Hill Quarry, located about a mile south-east of town, is a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest. In addition to Numatic International Limited, which is the town's main employer, the Oscar Mayer food processing industry is also located here. In addition to numerous recreational and cultural activities, Holyrood Academy provides secondary education, and religious structures such as the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was constructed in the late 11th century, can be found in the area.
