Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Scampston was located in Norton Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ancient parish of Rillington in the Buckrose Wapentake. The ecclesiastical parish was often known as Rillington with Scampston or Rillington cum Scampston.
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 Scampston has been in North Yorkshire, specifically within the Ryedale District.
