Welburn is a village and civil parish in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, in England, 2 miles south west of Kirkbymoorside and about 24 miles from York. The population of the parish was estimated at 60 in 2012.

Welburn was historically a township in the parish of Kirkdale and became a civil parish in 1866. In 1870–72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Welburn like this:

"WELBURN, a township in Kirkdale parish, N. R. Yorkshire; 5 miles E of Helmsley. Acres, 1,582. Real property, £2,846. Pop., 121. Houses, 20."

The civil parish includes the lower part of Kirkdale, including Kirkdale Cave and the parish church of St Gregory's Minster, both about north of the village. The Slingsby Aviation works and airstrip lie south-east of the village.

The sub-section of the Wikipedia article on Castle Howard refers to Welburn (near Castle Howard) which is a different village 10.7 miles south of Welburn (near Helmsley).

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Welburn was part of Kirkbymoorside Rural District. Historically, it was located in the ecclesiastical parish of Kirkdale in the Rydale Wapentake.
