The manor of Barford was held by the de Leyham family from about 1194, and then passed by inheritance into the de la Dale family in about 1316:[2] the de la Dales owned Barford for two centuries, after which it passed by inheritance to the Fettiplace family, and subsequently to the Brownes.

The village contains a small church, a manor house, several cottages and a farmhouse, while almost a kilometre away to the north is Little Barford Power Station feeding the National Grid.

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Denys. Nicholas Rowe, the dramatic poet, was born in "Rowe's Cottage" 1674.
