Stotfold was a very small parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England, that was absorbed by a neighbouring civil parish named Hooton Pagnell in 1920.

Historically, Stotfold was in the ecclesiastical parish of Hooton Pagnell in the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill. From 1894 until 1974, Stotfold was located in Doncaster Rural District. In 1974 the whole of the rural district became part of Doncaster metropolitan borough in South Yorkshire.
