It was founded in Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire, England, in 1754.[1] It was a weekly paper until it was renamed and became the daily Yorkshire Post, first published on Monday 2 July 1866.[2]

In 1865 it was acquired by the Yorkshire Conservative Newspaper Company Limited (now Yorkshire Post Newspapers).
