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

"BUSTON (High and Low), two townships in Warkworth parish, Northumberland; on the Northeastern railway, between the Alne and the Coquet rivers, 4½ and 5½ miles SE of Alnwick. Acres: 706 and 870. Population: 120 and 129. Houses: 21 and 20."

High Buston was a township in the ancient parish of Warkworth. It became a separate civil parish in 1866. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Alnwick Rural District. In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and the area was absorbed into the parish of Alnmouth.
