A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Angram from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"ANGRAM, a township in Long Marston parish, [West Riding of] Yorkshire; 4 miles NE of Tadcaster. Acres: 518. Population: 59. Houses: 14."

Originally, Angram was a village in the ecclesiastical parish of Long Marston in Ainsty Wapentake. It became a civil parish in 1866 and from 1894 until 1974, it was located in Wetherby Rural District. In 1974 the area became part of the Harrogate District of North Yorkshire. In 1988 the parishes were redrawn and Angram became part of Long Marston civil parish.
