Hempholme is a hamlet in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, in an area known as Holderness. It is situated approximately north-east of Beverley town centre. It lies east of the Driffield Navigation.

Wikipedia states that Hempholme is part of the civil parish of Brandesburton, but both GENUKI and Vision of Britain state that it was a "township" in Leven parish, with Vision of Britain going as far as to say that part of Brandesburton was taken into Leven in 1895 to access Hempholme. No further information has been found to state that the parish boundaries were again redrawn during the 20th century.
