Carlton was first mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086. By the 14th century it had become known as Karleton in Clyveland (Carlton in Cleveland), to distinguish the place from other places named Carlton. "Cleveland" refers to the historic region of Cleveland. The village did not form part of the county of Cleveland during its brief existence from 1974 to 1996.

In the Middle Ages it appears that Carlton was a chapelry in the parish of Rudby, but by 1611 Carlton had its own church, and was considered a separate parish. The present church, dedicated to St Botolph, was completed in 1897. It was designed by Temple Moore, and is a Grade II listed building.
