Iszkaszentgyörgy was first mentioned in documents in 1590. In the previous century, in the area of today's settlement, there used to be three independent villages, Iszka, Atya and Szentgyörgy. The name Iszka appeared as Icza in written records in 1193. Then it was the property of crusaders from Székesfehérvár. The name Szentgyörgy occurred as Zeng gyurk in sources from 1352. Its landowner was the Szentgyörgyi family, followed by the Amadé and Bajzáth families. Later it was transferred on the female line to the Pappenheim family, the last Hungarian member of which, Szigfrid, held it until 1945.
