Srch is probably a foundation of the Opatowitz Benedictine monastery . After the monastery was looted and burned down by the Hussites under Diviš Bořek von Miletínek in 1421 , the latter seized the extensive possessions.

The first written mention of Srch took place in 1436, when King Sigismund transferred large parts of the former monastery property to Diviš Bořek, who formed the Kunburg domain . At the end of the 15th century Wilhelm von Pernstein acquired the dominions of Pardubitz and Kunburg and united them. He had several large ponds built around the village. Wilhelm von Pernstein bequeathed his Bohemian goods to his younger son Vojtěch in 1521 , after his death they passed to his brother Johann in 1534 . In 1548 he left his son Jaroslav in high debt. On March 21, 1560 Jaroslav von Pernstein sold the entire rule of Pardubitz to King Ferdinand I. His successor Maximilian II transferred the administration of the royal lords to the court chamber .

In 1835, the in consisted Chrudim district located on swampy ground village Srch of 36 houses, where 261 people lived. The school was under government patronage. There were several springs in the village, one of which was vaulted and did not freeze over even in the harshest winter; Their water is said to have been fed into the Pardubice Castle through pipes . The parish was Kunietitz . Until the middle of the 19th century, Srch remained subordinate to the Imperial and Royal Chamber of Commerce Pardubice.

After the abolition of patrimonial Srch formed from 1849 a community in the judicial district of Pardubitz . From 1868 the municipality belonged to the political district of Pardubitz . In 1869 Srch had 347 inhabitants and consisted of 47 houses. The large fish ponds were drained in the second half of the 19th century and the pond sites were converted into farmland. In 1900 436 people lived in the village, in 1910 there were 444. In 1930 Srch had 488 inhabitants. In 1949 Srch was assigned to the Okres Pardubice-okolí; since 1960 the community belongs again to the Okres Pardubice . In 1961 Pohránov was incorporated. On April 30, 1976 Hrádek and Stéblová were incorporated. The district of Stéblová broke away on November 24, 1990. At the 2001 census, 696 people lived in Srch's 222 houses.
