The name Raughton Head is most likely derived from the Old English ragu–tūn, meaning "Farmstead where moss or lichen grows", with the later addition of hēafod, meaning "hill". It has been recorded as Ragton (1182) and Raughtonheved (1367).
Raughton Head was previously located within Castle Sowerby civil parish. The hamlet's previous church was dedicated to St. Jude. The church's building date is unknown, but it was rebuilt in 1678 by Edward Rainbowe and then again in 1760.
