From 1894 until 1974 Kiplingcotes was located in the Beverley Rural District. (Dalton Holme was formed in 1935 through a merger of the parishes of South Dalton and Holme on the Wolds.) The local ecclesiastical parish was Middleton on the Wolds in the wapentake of Harthill.

In 1974 most of what had been the East Riding of Yorkshire was joined with the northern part of Lincolnshire to became a new English county named Humberside. The urban and rural districts of the former counties were abolished and Humberside was divided into non-metropolitan districts. The new organization did not meet with the pleasure of the local citizenry and Humberside was wound up in 1996. The area north of the River Humber was separated into two "unitary authorities"—Kingston-upon-Hull covering the former City of Hull and its closest environs, and the less urban section which, once again, named itself the East Riding of Yorkshire.
