In 1823 Little Weighton was in the civil parish of Rowley and the Wapentake of Harthill. Occupations at the time included six farmers and yeomen, a shoemaker, a blacksmith, a tailor, a shopkeeper, and the landlord of The Black Horse public house. A carrier operated between the village and Beverley and Hull once a week.
