The village was originally known as Medeltone, meaning “middle farmstead” while Ross refers to the de Ros family, who used to own all the land which is now the village.

The de Ros family had a stronghold in the village, the mound of which can still be seen in what is now a farmer’s field.

The de Ros family had a long feud with the Tyrwhit family from the nearby village of Kettleby. According to legend in 1411 the Tyrwhits attacked Melton Ross Manor with 500 men. The disagreements continued, and some 200 years later James I erected gallows at a point close to the village, ordering that any deaths from the feud be treated as murder. The gallows are still standing, between Melton Ross and the nearby village of Wrawby.
