Marton forms part of the civil parish of Burton Constable.

In 1823 Marton was in the civil parish of Swine, and the Wapentake and Liberty of Holderness. A Catholic chapel was the only place of worship. Population at the time was 129, with occupations including nine farmers and a shoemaker. A carrier, who was also a Licensed victualler, operated between the village and Hull twice weekly.[1]

Marton was served from 1864 to 1964 by Burton Constable railway station on the Hull and Hornsea Railway.[2]

To the south-east of the settlement is the Roman Catholic Church of the Holy Sacrament which is a Grade II listed building.[3]
