Hagnaby is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Hagenebi", with 23 households. In 1086 the Lord of the Manor was Ivo Tallboys.[1]

The church, dedicated to Saint Andrew, is a Grade II listed building dating from the late 18th century with 1881 and 1903 alterations, and consists of render over red brick.[2]

A 19th-century mansion house assumed the name "Hagnaby Priory" although there is no historical record of any priory in the vicinity.[3] In 1964 Pevsner stated that remains of a large 1835 Tudor and Gothic style house (Hagnaby Priory) by Charles Kirk existed as part of a current office wing.[4][5]

In 1885 Kelly's Directory recorded a parish of 789 acres (3.2 km2), with agricultural production of wheat, oats, barley and beans.[6]
