The East Riding of Yorkshire has existed in two different time periods. Until 1974 it was one of the three "ridings" or "thirds" into which the county of Yorkshire was divided. Since 1996 and the abolition of Humberside it has been a unitary authority covering most, but not all of the area of the original East Riding. The areas no longer the East Riding administration area are Kingston upon Hull and its immediate environs (which makes a separate unitary authority), and the area covered by Norton Rural District and the northern "half" of Bridlington Rural District which has been transferred to North Yorkshire. Parts of Goole Rural District and Goole itself have been added into the new East Riding.

The landscape consists of a crescent of low chalk hills, the Yorkshire Wolds, surrounded by the low lying fertile plains of Holderness and the Vale of York. The Humber Estuary and North Sea mark its southern and eastern limits. Archaeological investigations have revealed artefacts and structures from all historical periods since the last ice age. There are few large settlements and no industrial centres. The area is administered from the ancient market and ecclesiastical town of Beverley. Christianity is the religion with the largest following in the area and there is a higher than average percentage of retired people living there.

The economy is mainly based on agriculture and this, along with tourism, has contributed to the rural and seaside character of the Riding. These aspects are also reflected in the places of interest to visitors and major landmarks, which include historic buildings, nature reserves and the Wolds Way long-distance footpath. The open and maritime aspects and lack of major urban developments have also led to the county being allocated relatively high targets for the generation of energy from renewable sources.

Major sporting and entertainment venues are concentrated in Kingston upon Hull or, simply "Hull", while the seaside and market towns support semi-professional and amateur sports clubs and provide seasonal entertainment for visitors. Bishop Burton is the site of an agricultural college, and Hull provides the region's only university. On the southern border, close to Hull, the Humber Bridge has spanned the Humber Estuary since 1981 to enable the A15 to link Hessle with Barton-upon-Humber in North Lincolnshire.

During the period until 1974 the East Riding was separated into Wapentakes (known as hundreds in counties further south), and then from 1894 until 1974 into local administration areas known as Urban Districts and Rural Districts. Urban districts usually each contained one civil parish (and possibly a few villages that were part of the built-up area). Rural districts were made up of a number of civil parishes spead over a much wider area. In addition, since 1837, there are Registration Districts which are responsible for collecting birth, marriage and death information, and also for managing the census which occurs once a decade.

Since 1996 the East Riding is a unitary authority with one governmental body responsible for the whole area. Representatives are elected at ward level.

Research Tips

  • Original historical documents relating to the East Riding of Yorkshire and Kingston upon Hull are held at the
East Riding of Yorkshire Archives Service collects, preserves and makes available to the public the historic records of the East Riding. The Archives Service holds over 10,000 linear feet of documents dating from the 12th century to the present day. These records contain information about every community in the East Riding and cover a wide range of subjects.
Hull City Archives hold a wealth of information, covering the rich and varied fortunes of the city. The collections include non-conformist churches, local families, municipal cemeteries and records of the courts. In addition they hold unique photographs many of which are now accessible online via their historical photographs database.
The Yorkshire Archaeological Society promotes the study of Yorkshire's historical past - agriculture, archaeology, architecture, history, industry, religion and the people of the historic county. This is a county-wide resource based in the City of York.
Brynmor Jones Library Archives and Manuscripts (Hull University) includes Family and estate papers, and Solicitors' archives. A specific interlink was not found, just the one for the Hull University Library
  • A History of the County of Yorkshire from British History Online (Victoria County Histories) does not have complete coverage for the East Riding (the northern part is missing). East Riding volumes in existence are:

This is by far the most complete history of the parishes of the county to be found online. The chapters are ordered by the divisions of the county called wapentakes, but each chapter is linked to the volume's content page.

  • GENUKI has a page on all three ridings of Yorkshire and pages for each of the ecclesiastical parishes in the county. Under each parish there is a list of the settlements within it and brief description of each. These are based on a gazetteer dated 1835 and there may have been a number of alterations to the parish setup since then. However, it is worthwhile information for the pre civil registration era. GENUKI provides references to other organizations who hold genealogical information for the local area. However, here is no guarantee that the website has been kept up to date.
  • The FamilyTree Wiki has a series of pages similar to those provided by GENUKI which may have been prepared at a later date. The wiki has a link to English Jurisdictions 1851 which gives the registration district and wapentake for each parish, together with statistics from the 1851 census for the area.
  • A Vision of Britain through Time, Yorkshire East Riding, section "Units and Statistics" leads to analyses of population and organization of the county from about 1800 through 1974. There are pages available for all civil parishes, municipal boroughs and other administrative divisions. Descriptions provided are usually based on a gazetteer of 1870-72.

A Vision of Britain through Time also provides

For a more detailed view of a specific area try a map from this selection. The oldest series are very clear at the third magnification offered. Comparing the map details with the GENUKI details for the same area is well worthwhile.

  • Yorkshire has a large number of family history and genealogical societies. A list of the societies will be found on the Yorkshire page.
  • In March 2018 Ancestry announced that its file entitled "Yorkshire, England: Church of England Parish Records, 1538-1873" has been expanded to include another 94 parishes (across the three ridings) and expected it to be expanded further during the year. The entries are taken from previously printed parish registers.
