Sutton Howgrave was mentioned in the Domesday Book (as Sudtone) and in the Middle Ages it was a manor in the parish of Kirklington in the North Riding of Yorkshire.[2] It remained a township of Kirklington until 1866, when it became a separate civil parish,[3] now known as Sutton with Howgrave.

Despite its name, the parish of Sutton with Howgrave does not include all of Howgrave, which is a separate civil parish.

The civil parish of Sutton with Howgrave became part of Hambleton district in North Yorkshire in 1974. Since 1978 it has shared the grouped parish council of Kirklington with Sutton Howgrave with the parishes of Kirklington cum Upsland and Howgrave.
