A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Upper Mitton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "MITTON (UPPER), a hamlet in Hartlebury parish, Worcester; ¾ of a mile NE of Stourport. Acres: 180. Real property: £1,176. Population: 262. Houses: 55."
From 1894 until 1897 Upper Mitton was a parish in the Droitwich Rural District. In 1897 it was transferred to Stourport-on-Severn Urban District and became a part of Stourport-on-Severn civil parish in 1927. Since 1974 the area has been part of the Wychavon District, first in the county of Hereford and Worcester, and then, since 1998, in Worcestershire again.
There is a sketchmap of the parishes of Droitwich Rural District with Stourport-on-Severn adjacent on the rural district page.
