The Hungarian name probably stems from the churches patron Saint George. The church predates the 1394 mention. It is later called by the names Zenthgwrt in 1466, and Zenthgergh in 1564. The village had a post stop in the 18th century. In the 19th century it belonged to the éleskő-szentjánosi estate. In the 1910 census it had 2047 inhabitants, the majority of whom were ethnic Slovak.
