Wembdon was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as having "5 villagers and 6 smallholders with four ploughs".

The name Wembdon is believed to mean "Huntsman's Hill", referring to Wembdon Hill itself where Saxon* burials have been discovered. These are believed to be British burials which date to the Saxon period. Wembdon Hill is also the site of St. Johns Well, which was renowned for its healing powers from the 15th century onwards.
