Markadon is referred to as Marcadene in 1189. Situated on a hill forming the boundary between the manors of Stoke and Harton the name probably means 'boundary hill'.

Hartland Abbey's royal charter of 1189 shows that Oliver de Dinan gave the canons of the refounded Abbey, the manor of Markadon. The name means "boundary hill" and shows that the manor lay just beyond the edge of the old monastic property.
