There is evidence of human occupation on this site since 8,000BC. Archaeological surveys show that Stone Age people hunted here and that there was farming activity in the Bronze Age. The parkland has been home to herds of deer since 1290.

In the late Tudor period Tatton was acquired by the Egerton family who owned the estate until Maurice, 4th and last Baron Egerton of Tatton died without heirs in 1958. Maurice Egerton bequeathed the estate to the National Trust and in 1960 a lease was drawn up with Cheshire County Council who managed and financed the property on behalf of the National Trust until April 2009 when responsibility transferred to Cheshire East Council.
