The town was first mentioned in written texts in 1334 when it went by the name of Chorod and later by Korod in 1415. The name of the village is said to have either come from the word kóró, meaning a dry plant stem or shrub, or the word góró-góré, meaning watch post. [1] A logical reason for this naming is because it is said that Tiszakóród guarded the Tisza river crossing in 1374. [2]

The ancient owner of the village was the Kusaly family. In the 14th century, the Kölcseyes also had property here, to which the family received a new donation in 1344. In 1488, part of their estates were sold to the people of Perény. In 1550, Kórod was acquired by the Rozsályi Kúnok and annexed to the Rozsályi estate.

Fényes Elek described in his historical geography that the settlement on the banks of the Tisza, which had suffered greatly from the floods, was often washed away by the price, so he was forced to move further and further away from his original place. In the middle of the 19th century, the remains of the old village were still visible in a part called Burgundy.
