The civil parish was formed in 1935 from the civil parishes of Great Givendale with Grimthorpe, Millington with Little Givendale, and Ousethorpe. Millington also took a portion of the civil parish of Bishop Wilton with Belthorpe. According to the 2011 UK census, Millington parish had a population of 242, an increase on the 2001 UK census figure of 217.

Historically, Millington was an ecclesiastical parish of in the wapentake of Harthill. From 1894 until 1974, Millington was located in Pocklington Rural District.

Humberside 1974-1996

In 1974 most of what had been the East Riding of Yorkshire was joined with the northern part of Lincolnshire to became a new English county named Humberside. The urban and rural districts of the former counties were abolished and Humberside was divided into non-metropolitan districts. The new organization did not meet with the pleasure of the local citizenry and Humberside was wound up in 1996. The area north of the River Humber was separated into two "unitary authorities"—Kingston upon Hull covering the former City of Hull and its closest environs, and the less urban section to the west and to the north which, once again, named itself the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The phrase "Yorkshire and the Humber" serves no purpose in WeRelate. It refers to one of a series of basically economic regions established in 1994 and abolished for most purposes in 2011. See the Wikipedia article entited "Regions of England").
