A priory of canons of the Gilbertine Order existed at Ellerton: founded before 1212, and relinquished on 11 December 1536 under the Suppression of the Monasteries. In 1823 Ellerton, was in the Wapentake of Harthill, and contained a Methodist chapel and a chapel dedicated to St Mary. The village had a population of 318, with occupations including ten farmers, a corn miller, a tailor, and a shopkeeper. A shoemaker was also a licensed victualler of The Board public house. Also directory-listed was a school master, a gentleman and a vicar. Once a week a carrier operated between the village and York.[1]

The parish church of St Mary, by architect John Loughborough Pearson, was designated a Grade II listed building in December 1966 and is now recorded in the National Heritage List for England, maintained by Historic England.[2]
