In the area of Appleton le Street with Easthorpe lies the notable All Saints church. The church is situated just north of Easthorpe in Appleton le Street itself. The church is a Grade I listed Saxon church which escaped improvement by the Victorians. The earliest written reference to a church at Appleton exists in a charter of King Henry II (1154–1189). It is curiously omitted from the Domesday Book, yet it is beyond dispute that there was a church at that time. The first reference in the register to Appleton is on 20 September 1232 when a Mr. Stephen de (Eglefeld?) was instituted as first rector. Inside, effigies date from the 13th and 14th centuries and some interior woodwork dates from 1636.

The place Appleton le Street originally translates to, Apple orchard on a Roman road. Appleton in old Roman times simply translates to an orchard, le, translates to 'the' in old French and the word street in old Roman times translates to a Roman road. Easthorpe directly translates to, East outlying farm or settlement. With east simply translating to eastern, and thorpe directly translating to, a secondary settlement and a dependent outlying farm or hamlet.

It is to be remembered that this discussion of population figures relates only to the civil parish of Appleton le Street with Easthorpe. The ecclesiastical parish of Appleton le Street is much larger and has a larger housing stock.

And then in 1881, the number of professionals had decreased to three people, one male and two females. The majority of men in 1881 still worked on agriculture, whilst the majority of women worked in the 'Unknown Sector'. The men mostly worked in hard labour jobs whilst women worked in more domestic occupations.

As you can see from the line graph showing the total number of houses, between the years of around 1831 and 1851, the total number of houses were between 196 and 210 respectively, and from the graph showing the house occupancy, you can see that just below 90% were occupied in 1831, which is means there was 21 vacant at the time, but as get closer to 1851, the vacant number of homes decreases, to only 9.

As you progress down the years past 1851, there is a similar trend to population as there is to the total number of houses, with the number decreasing rapidly to only 34 in 1881, and this number is stable all the way through to 1961 where the total number of homes is 36. However, as you can see from the total occupancy graph there is no vacant houses in 1881 but then by 1891 only around 75% of the houses are occupied, with 8 homes being vacant, until around 1921, then all the houses are occupied again all the way up to 1961.
