The illustrious history of The Stonemasons Inn is not fully known except as a row of seventeenth century buildings probably all cottages. It is uncertain when the buildings were first used as a hostelry but the position on the outskirts of the town and on a busy arterial route would have been a prime one for many centuries. Petworth itself predates The Domesday Book (1086) and was earlier known as Peteorde.

In medieval times it was a busy market town and much of its prosperity has been linked to its proximity to Petworth House built for the Percy family in the fourteenth century and rebuilt by Charles Seymour Duke of Somerset between 1688 and 1696.
