The village used to be in the Wapentake of Pickering Lythe. A cairn in the village dedicated to King Alfred who supposedly sought sanctuary in a cave here before being removed to Driffield where he died.
On 18 August 2009 a 500 lb unexploded bomb was destroyed in a controlled explosion next to the village which necessitated the evacuation of hundreds of local residents from Ebberston and Allerston. The bomb hailed from a 'Whitley Mark V Bomber', of the No. 102 Squadron RAF, based at RAF Linton-on-Ouse which crash landed on 27 October 1940, with all personnel having bailed out and survived.
The 11th century Church, St Mary the Virgin, is to the west of the village just off the A170.
