According to the 2001 census, the parish had a population of 266, increasing to 302 at the 2011 census.

Its name was formerly spelt as Boningall or Bonninghall.

The red sandstone church of St. Chad was originally built in the 12th century, and now has a 19th-century interior. There are the remains of a medieval cross in the churchyard.

Boningale's most famous resident is perhaps the notorious eighteenth-century criminal Jonathan Wild, who was said to have been born there in 1682, although he is otherwise described as a native of nearby Wolverhampton.
