Ersin Doğer, in his work titled 'History of Menemen and Tarhaniyat', states that the history of Kozbeyli can be traced back to the period of Saruhanoğulları and counts Kozbeyli within the boundaries of the Saruhanoğulları Principality in the 14th and 16th centuries. There are traces of antiquity and various ruins around the village.
