Hutton Sessay is a village and civil parish which, since 1974, has been located in the Hambleton District of North Yorkshire, England. In 2013 the population of the civil parish was estimated at 100. The village is situated just west of the A19 road between Thirsk and Easingwold.
Though the village is not mentioned specifically in the Domesday Book, it is thought that some of the lands would have been split between the manors of Sessay and Birdforth and followed the inheritance of those places thereafter. By the end of the 19th century, the village lands were owned by Viscount Downe.
The village used to have both Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist Chapels.
Hutton Sessay was originally a township in the ancient parish of Sessay in the Allerton Wapentake of the North Riding of Yorkshire. Hutton Sessay was made a civil parish in 1866 and in 1894 it became part of the Thirsk Rural District. Since 1974 it has been in North Yorkshire, specifically within the Hambleton District.
- This is by far the most complete history of the parishes of the county to be found online. The chapters are ordered by the divisions of the county called wapentakes, but each chapter is linked to the volume's content page.
- GENUKI has a page on all three ridings of Yorkshire and pages for each of the ecclesiastical parishes in the county. Under each parish there is a list of the settlements within it and brief description of each.
- These are based on a gazetteer dated 1835 and there may have been a number of alterations to the parish setup since then. However, it is worthwhile information for the pre civil registration era. GENUKI provides references to other organizations who hold genealogical information for the local area. There is no guarantee that the website has been kept up to date and the submitter is very firm about his copyright. This should not stop anyone from reading the material.
- The FamilyTree Wiki has a series of pages similar to those provided by GENUKI which may have been prepared at a later date. The wiki has a link to English Jurisdictions 1851 which gives the registration district and wapentake for each parish, together with statistics from the 1851 census for the area.
- A Vision of Britain through Time, Yorkshire North Riding, section "Units and Statistics" leads to analyses of population and organization of the county from about 1800 through 1974. There are pages available for all civil parishes, municipal boroughs and other administrative divisions. Descriptions provided are usually based on a gazetteer of 1870-72.

- The above two maps indicate the boundaries between parishes, etc., but for a more detailed view of a specific area try a map from this selection. The oldest series are very clear at the third magnification offered. Comparing the map details with the GENUKI details for the same area is well worthwhile.
- Yorkshire has a large number of family history and genealogical societies. A list of the societies will be found on the Yorkshire, England page.
