Village Jasenov was founded under a castle with the same name. History of village has began to be written since the year 1279, when it was developed from extramural settlement of the castle Jasenov which was probably possessed by the Pethénys. Some historians say, that opinion of Gy. Dudás does not contain any historical basis, that the castle has been already owned by aristocrats from Michalovce in the year 1279. The first written mention is from 1451. To the last third of the 17th century it was owned by the Drugeths, in following years was occupied by several families. According to preserved written annals Jasenov belongs to the oldest villages in the district Humenné and was founded following common law. Village was developed as subjective village belonging at first to the Jasenov castle county and later to the Humenné county.
