The first historical mention of Otreshagh (or Ottershaw) is in the charter of King Alfred to the monastery of Chertsey of c890. The name Ottershaw, came in to general use in the mid 19th century, when the present parish was formed from the hamlets of Chertsey Lane End, Brox and Spratts.

Prior to this, "Ottershaw" only referred to the Ottershaw Park area. All the area was in Chertsey common and formed part of Windsor Forest, being the Royal hunting grounds. In latter years, the village grew and prospered as a nursery and farming community.

Many of the properties in the area are bordered by banks of Rhododendrons and mature trees. The estate of Anningsley Park is tucked away to the south east of the village being semi-rural in appearance and easily missed for those unfamiliar with the surroundings.
