Burnby is a village and former civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. In 1935 it was abolished to enlarge the neighbouring parish of Hayton. Both parishes were located in Pocklington Rural District.

Burnby is situated approximately 2.5 miles (4 km) south-east of the town of Pocklington and 4 miles (6.4 km) north-west of the market town of Market Weighton. It lies 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east of the A1079 road.

The church, dedicated to St Giles, was designated in 1967 by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building. Burnby was served by Nunburnholme railway station on the York to Beverley Line between 1847 and 1951.

Historically, Burnby was an ecclesiastical parish in the wapentake of Harthill.
