Until 1935 Thixendale was located in Pocklington Rural District in the East Riding of Yorkshire. In that year it acquired land from the neighbouring parish of Kirby Underdale and was transferred to Norton Rural District where it remained until the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Wharram Percy in the Buckrose Wapentake.
