There has been a habitation in Oadby since an Anglian settlement in the early Anglo-Saxon period.
Though the name Oadby is Danish (meaning "Outi's dwelling") it must have existed long before the Danish invasions as is shown by the existence of a pagan Anglian cemetery. Danish rule continued until 920, when King Alfred the Great won his battles against the Danes: the Oadby area is supposed to be the site of at least one of these battles.
In the Domesday Book, 1086, Oadby's name was recorded as Oldebi.
Other early forms are Oladebi, Outheby (Feet of Fines, 1199), Onderby and, finally, Oadby.
The main A6 dual carriageway passes through the town, bypassing the commercial centre.
