Research indicates that the village, originally know as Edshale, was a Viking settlement on higher ground adjacent to the River Aire and is mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086.

More recently the village was base on agriculture and the quarrying of sand.

Hensall is in the District of Selby and the County of North Yorkshire and there are currently just over 300 residential properties.
