Inhauna is listed in the late-16th-century Ain-i-Akbari as a mahal in the sarkar of Awadh.[3] It kept this status under the Nawabs of Awadh, under whom a fort was built in the southern part of the village.[3] After the British annexed Oudh State in 1856, Inhauna was made a tehsil headquarters in Sultanpur district.[3] It lost this status in 1869, when it was transferred to Raebareli district as part of a greater administrative reshuffling.[3] Under this new arrangement, Inhauna became part of Maharajganj tehsil.[3] With the tehsil headquarters and police station relocated, Inhauna declined somewhat from a population of 3,974 in 1869 to 3,373 in 1901.[3]

At the turn of the 20th century, Inhauna was described as the only sizeable town in the pargana.[3] It was surrounded by orchards and had a post office, a cattle pound, and a middle vernacular school.[3] To the north of the road to Lucknow was a military encamping ground.[3]

The 1961 census recorded Inhauna as comprising 12 hamlets, with a total population of 4,024 people (2,017 male and 2,007 female), in 906 households and 854 physical houses.[4] The area of the village was given as 2,236 acres.[4] Average attendance of the twice-weekly market was listed as about 3,000 people.[4]

The 1981 census recorded Inhauna as having a population of 4,905 people, in 1,198 households, and having an area of 851.05 hectares.[5]
