Hooton Pagnell is a village and civil parish in the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England, at a point where it borders with West Yorkshire. Its 21st-century population is about 200. The name of the village derives from Ralph de Paganel (sometimes spelled Paynell), a Norman who was a tenant-in-chief in Yorkshire named in the Domesday Book and an extensive landowner.

Historically, Hooton Pagnell was an ecclesiastical parish n the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill. From 1894 until 1974, Hooton Pagnell was located in Doncaster Rural District.

In 1920 two smaller villages, Bilham and Stotfold, were absorbed into the civil parish.
