History

The Roman road from York (Eboracum) to Tadcaster (Calcaria) runs to the north of the village centre, along what are now Top Lane, Hallcroft Lane and Colton Lane.

It is recorded that the Lord of Copmanthorpe Manor was an Anglo-Saxon, named Gospatrick, at the time of the Norman invasion of England. According to the Domesday book, the title was handed to Erneis de Burun in 1084, when he became Sherriff of Yorkshire.
