From 1894 until 1974 Hunmanby was part of the Bridlington Rural District. Prior to that it was an ecclesiastical parish in Dickering Wapentake. In 1974 the rural district was abolished and the East Riding was split between two new counties: Humberside and North Yorkshire. North Yorkshire also acquired all but the northeast corner of what had been the North Riding of Yorkshire and a large northern swathe of the West Riding. North Yorkshire was divided into a number of district municipalities. Hunmanby was place in Scarborough District.
