Hullshire was a former district of England. The large county corporate was created in 1440 by Henry VI of England.[1] It took its name from the River Hull, which formed its eastern boundary. At times it included the East Riding of Yorkshire's other two boroughs, Beverley and Hedon. It did not include the city of Kingston upon Hull as this was a separate city-county.

Hullshire was usually included as part of the East Riding, despite not being administered as part of it. Its status was abolished in 1889 as part of the local government reforms,[1] although the term was used occasionally into the twentieth century.
