Also recorded as Thoydon Garnon and Coopersale, "Theydon" is thought to mean 'valley where thatch (material) grows' and "Garnon" derives from the Gernon family. A weekly market and annual fair was granted to Theydon Garnon in 1305. A workhouse operated in the parish from around 1704.
By 1851 the parish's population had reached 1,237. Epping station opened within the parish in 1865, but was included in the newly formed Epping Urban District in 1896, along with the village of Coopersale and the hamlets of Coopersale Street, and Fiddler's Hamlet. The reduction in the parish's size led to a reduction in population, down to 317 in 1901.
The village contains an Anglican parish church, dating back to the 13th Century and dedicated to All Saints. A primary school part-bears the village's name, but is located in the village of Coopersale in the neighbouring Epping parish.
