It was one of the ancient parishes of the traditional county of Denbighshire but a small part lay in the detached part of the traditional county of Flintshire. Much of the picturesque village in now a conservation area.
A church dedicated to St. Erbin was mentioned as far back as the 13th century but the present church, dedicated to St. Hilary, was constructed in 1860.
Wrexham historian Alfred Neobard Palmer suggested that the name derives from "Erbin's stoke" meaning Erbin's stockaded ford.
Erbistock has two popular pubs. The Cross Foxes at Overton Bridge, dating back to 1748, was built by the Wynnstay estate for its workers. The famous 18th century Boat Inn stands beside the River Dee. The inn takes its name from the hand-operated ferry which once crossed the river at this point, with remnants of the pull mechanism still existing nearby.
