The village is first mentioned in charters in 1271 with the name: Byk . The church had been built in the 12th century, so the village is even older. In 1461 the name of the village is Poss. Vinchefalwa Byk. The name corresponds the old Vinczlófalva-Bik, which is now called Felső-Bükk. In the 15th century there were three Bik villages. The Büki Family was the landowner. Their descendants are the Mankóbüki Horváth and the Felsőbüki Nagy families. Pál Felsőbüki Nagy was a famous member of the Hungarian House of Representatives in the 19th century. Another notable landowners were the Counts Cseszneky who bought Alsóbük in the 16th century.
