The community was named after one Mr. Stockton, a railroad official.[2] Georgia General Assembly incorporated Stockton as a town in 1876.[3] The town's municipal charter was repealed in 1995.[2]

In 1944 the community was the site of the Stockton train wreck, a train derailment caused by a broken rail in which 47 people were killed.[4]
