Aston was established as a borough in 1682 and organized as a township in 1688 and is known as one of the first townships in Pennsylvania. Before 1687, Aston was previously named Northley and was changed by Edward Carter, the township constable, to be named after his previous home of Aston in Oxfordshire, England.
Aston was designated as a first-class township in 1906. When the northwestern part of the township gained its independence to create the borough of Chester Heights in 1945, the present borders of Aston were created.
Based on the United States census of 2000, there was an estimated population of 16,200 people, 5,800 households, and 4,200 families that resided in Aston Township.
