Sunderlandwick is a hamlet in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south of Driffield and lies to the west of the A164 road.

Historically, Sunderlandwick was in the ecclesiastical parish of Hutton Cranswick in the wapentake of Harthill. From 1894 until 1935, Sunderlandwick was a civil parish in Driffield Rural District. Since 1935 it forms part of the civil parish of Hutton Cranswick.

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.
