Allostock's name was developed from the Celtic word 'Lostock' which in Celtic means a place of piggeries. Lostock then became 'Auld' or 'Old Lostock' which eventually lead to the name Allostock. Despite it being overlooked in the doomsday book the origin of the name implies that the piggery was a growing concern before the Norman invasion and possibly even the Romans. The earliest recorded reference of 'Alostocke' was in the 13th century in the Leycester of Tabley papers. During the Saxon settlement in the 7th-century part of today's Allostock was named 'Bradshaw' ("the broad wood"). The name still exists in Brook, with Bradshaw Brook Farm, Bradshaw Brook Methodist church and Bradshaw House.
