North Grimston was originally an ancient parish in Buckrose Wapentake in the East Riding of Yorkshire. In 1866 the status of civil parish was introduced and this was taken on by most ancient parishes and also by their subsidiary townships if they were of any size at all. In 1866 North Grimston, which had no townships, became a civil parish. In 1894 it became part of the Norton Rural District of the East Riding. In 1935 North Grimston was absorbed into the neighbouring civil parish of Birdsall within 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 North Grimston has been in North Yorkshire, specifically within the Ryedale District.
