A Vision of Britain through Time, provides the following description of Coates from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870-72):

"COATES, a township in Barnoldswick parish, [West Riding of] Yorkshire; 7½ miles SW of Skipton. Acres: 700. Population: 122. Houses: 20."

Coates was absorbed into Barnoldswick in 1923. Originally it had been a hamlet in the ancient parish of Barnoldswick in the Staincliffe and Ewcross Wapentake. From 1894 until 1923 it was a civil parish in Skipton Rural District. The whole area is now considered part of Lancashire.
