Knapton is a village now in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England about 7 miles northeast of Malton. Until 1935 it was a civil parish in its own right, but in that year it was absorbed into the neighbouring civil parish of Scampston within the Norton Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Wintringham in the Buckrose Wapentake.
Knapton is made up of two settlements: East and West Knapton. West Knapton is the larger of the two and can be found in Wikipedia. It should not be confused with Knapton (in Acomb) just outside of the city of York.
