The Parish comprises two settlements split by the river Ribble: Knight Stainforth (also called Little Stainforth) to the West and Stainforth (Staynford Underbergh or Greater Stainforth as it was also known) to the East. Probably first settled in the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods Stainforth has seen the coming and departure of the Brigantine Celts, the Romans, the Angles, Saxons and Norse. Unfortunately there is little written evidence of their influence though the area is rich in archaeological artefacts and some place names still reflect the later settlers. Knight Stainforth was held in the 13th and 14th centuries by the de Stainford family until the male line died out when it passed, by marriage, to the Tempest family. One member, Sir Richard was knighted (hence Knight Stainforth) after the battle of Wakefield in 1460. He died in 1488 and his descendants held Knight Stainforth until 1511 when again it passed by marriage to the Darcy family.

In the 13th century the principal landowners in (Greater) Stainforth were Hugh (or Hugo) son of Adam of Stainforth and Elias of Giggleswick. In a series of legal processes the land in Stainforth was gifted to Sawley Abbey and in 1270 Henry III granted Sawley free warren in Stainforth and elsewhere. Despite numerous gifts of land Sawley suffered a number of natural and man-made disasters. Chief amongst these was the founding of the rival Whalley Abbey which diverted trade from Sawley. From 1291 the weather began to adversely affect crops and animal husbandry and in 1314 there was a very poor summer followed by monsoon-like rains in 1315 and 1316. Regular attacks by Scottish raiders from 1314 to 1347, following the defeat of the English at Bannockburn by Robert the Bruce further reduced the ability of Stainforth and other Sawley possessions to support the Abbey and the local population. Matters improved after 1450 and revenues recovered.

Later Henry VIIIís need for Crown revenues and his dispute with Rome resulted in the dissolution of the monasteries. This was unpopular and an anti-Government movement known as the Pilgrimage of Grace spread across the North in 1536. Local rebels under the leadership of Robert Aske held a meeting at Dale Head in the parish. Nevertheless, the dissolutions were carried out and the possessions and plate of Sawley Abbey were sold to Sir Arthur Darcy uniting both Stainforths under one family. Over the next 50 years much of the estate was parcelled up and given, sold or leased on 500 year leases. Formerly a township of Giggleswick parish, Stainforth became a parish in its own right with the consecration of St. Peterís Church in 1842. Except during the building of the Settle Carlisle Railway line, which opened in 1875, when its population was swelled by itinerant workers and their families, in recent times its population has remained around 200.

The Post Office and shop was run by the Handy family from 1937, first in Park View and then Brookhouse Farm. It was then run by the Priors at Riston House who took it to the Craven Heifer Pub when they became tenants. Here it featured in the visit by His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, in December 2001, as part of the ĎPub is the Hubí campaign to emphasize the role played by pubs in village life. The Post Office then moved to Bridge Cottage but subsequently closed when a new proprietor could not be found. The village pub carries on but the phrase 'use it or lose it' springs to mind. The Stainforth Youth Hostel, a victim with others of rationalisation, closed in 2007. The property has since been purchased by private individuals who plan to restore Taitlands, which is a listed building, to a whole house again.
