Vrbanj was recorded as an existing, long established settlement in the 1331 statute of the Hvar Commune. The statute mentions a "Fons Varba", so it is possible that this is the origin of the settlements name.

In the document, written in Latin by Gabriel Gazzarus "canonicus pharensis", which recorded the benediction of the church of St Nikola, built at the highest point above Starigrad, (crkve Svetog Nikola od Velog Brda iznad Starog Grada), on 10 April 1487, the eleven founders of the church were listed, their surnames are; Ivanić, Lušić, Čubretović, Bratanić and Carnogorich/Crnogorić (this last one is not in the census taken two centuries later, possibly this surname became Matković, who are known to have originated from Boka Kotorska in Crnagora/Montenegro).

As recorded in the first preserved census of the island of Hvar from 1673, Vrbanj had 387 inhabitants (87 families).
