Mentioned in the Knytlinga saga of the 1250s, the name is likely to mean a village of someone named Hemingr. During the Middle Ages, Hemingbrough had the River Ouse running through it and was part of the Ouse and Derwent region of England. Until 1866, Barlby, Brackenholme with Woodhall, Cliffe cum Lund, Menthorpe with Bowthrope, Osgodby and South Duffield were townships in the parish of Hemingbrough. Today it is part of North Yorkshire and still used for agriculture.
