Aylmerton has an entry in the Domesday Book. Aylmerton is recorded by the names Almartune, and Almertune, the main land holder being William de Warren and the main tenant Roger Bigot.

One mile south of the village is an ancient cross which has been restored. Aylmerton wayside cross is on the parish boundary with Gresham and was said to be a guide to Walsingham. Three roads meet here, and a rough track heading westwards is said to have been part of the pilgrims' way heading to the holy shrines to be found there.
