The civil parish was formed in 1891, when the civil parishes of Byram cum Poole and Sutton, both in the West Riding of Yorkshire, were abolished.[3] The new parish became part of Pontefract Rural District when it was formed in 1894, and of Osgoldcross Rural District from 1938. Under the 1974 local government reforms the parish joined Selby District in the new county of North Yorkshire.
