In 1875 Victor Guérin noted: "Near a little mosque are well-cut stones, the remains of a demolished church, of which there also survive fragments of monolithic columns and several broken capitals, strewing the soil in several places, and especially near the Sheikh's house.' He estimated that the village had 350 to 400 Metawileh inhabitants.
In 1881, the Palestine Exploration Fund's Survey of Western Palestine (SWP) described it as: "A village, built of stone, containing about 150 Metawileh, on a hill, surrounded by figs, olives, and arable land. The water is obtained from a spring near and cisterns in the village."
