The first documentary evidence of the existence of the village was in the Domesday Book ordered by William the Conqueror and it was clear from this entry that Nort Duffelt, as it was then called, was already in existence at that time.

More recently evidence in marks in the field give hints of Iron Age occupation and Roman pottery and coins turning up in the fields, open  a tantalising window on the earliest occupants.
