Camblesforth is listed in the Domesday Book. Merleswein the Sheriff was Lord of the Manor of Camblesforth in 1066. Ralph Paynell became Lord of the Manor in 1086 [2] after Camblesforth suffered the Harrowing of the North by William the Conqueror to subjugate Northern England.

In 1224, the Lordship passed through the Paynell family to the de Brus family. Subsequently, Sibil de Beaulieu (d.1301) daughter of Laderina de Brus, Lady of Camblesforth and granddaughter of Peter de Brus, Lord of Skelton married Sir Miles Stapleton (d.1314).[3] The Lordship stayed in the Stapleton family until Henry Edwarde Paine acquired the Lordship from Henry Stapleton, 9th Lord Beaumont in 1893. The Lordship was in the hands of his Mr. Paine's trustees from his death in 1917 to 1956. The present Lord of the Manor's family acquired the Lordship from the Trustees in 1956.[4]

Camblesforth Hall, the seat of Sir Charles Blois, Bart., is the oldest standing structure in Camblesforth. The Grade I hall was built c. 1690-1700.[5]
