NOTE: Luttons Ambo should not be confused with Huttons Ambo which is not far away.
Luttons Ambo is made up of two villages: West Lutton and East Lutton. The term Ambo means "twin". Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Weaverthorpe in the Buckrose Wapentake.
In 1935 the boundaries of the rural districts of Driffield, Norton and Sherburn were redrawn. Sherburn was abolished entirely and the civil parishes of Luttons Ambo, Helperthorpe, Weaverthorpe, Butterwick and Foxholes with Boythorpe (which are in a line from west to east) moved from Driffield to Norton. Compare the maps Ordnance Survey 1900 and Ordnance Survey 1944 below.
When the civil parish of Luttons Ambo was transferred to Norton Rural District, its name was changed to Luttons.
Since the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Luttons is located in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England.

These maps all blow up to a scale that will illustrate small villages and large farms or estates.
