Sherburn 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 Sherburn, which had no townships, became a civil parish. In 1894 it became part of the Sherburn Rural District of the East Riding. In 1935 Sherburn Rural District was abolished and Sherburn parish was transferred to 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 Sherburn 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.
