NOTE: Wikipedia lists another Sandholme in the East Riding of Yorkshire--west of Hull between Goole and Brough. The two places are not the same. Storkhill with Sandholme is not listed in Wikipedia, nor is it to be found on Google Earth.

Storkhill with Sandholme was a civil parish from 1866-1935 and now forms part of the civil parish of Tickton. From 1894 until 1974 the area was part of the Beverley Rural District. Prior to that it was a township in the ecclesiastical parish of Beverley St. John in the wapentake of Harthill.

Tickton and the parishes that formed it do not appear on the above map. From their co-ordinates it is to be assumed that Tickton is in the eastern reaches of what is described as Molescroft.

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").
