Historically, Kennythorpe was located in the ancient parish of Langton in the Buckrose Wapentake in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is located about 4 miles south of Malton.
It was made a civil parish in 1866 and in 1894 became a part of Norton Rural District. In 1935 the civil parish was abolished and Kennythorpe was absorbed into the neighbouring civil parish of Burythorpe still within the Norton Rural District.
In 1974 rural districts were abolished and the border between the East Riding of Yorkshire and the North Riding of Yorkshire was realigned. The North Riding changed its name to North Yorkshire.
Since 1974 Kennythorpe has been in North Yorkshire, specifically within the Ryedale District.

- A Vision of Britain through Time also provides links to three maps of the East Riding, produced by the United Kingdom Ordnance Survey, illustrating the boundaries between the civil parishes and the rural districts at various dates. These maps all blow up to a scale that will illustrate small villages and large farms or estates.
