St Mary Magdalene and St Helena Church was built c. 12th century. In 1810 it was rebuilt, and is now in ruins. In 1972 Pevsner noted that the church was "full of trees". Effigies from the church were removed to Hornsea. In November 1985 the remains were designated as Grade II and is now recorded in the National Heritage List for England, maintained by Historic England.
In 1823 Nunkeeling was a civil parish in the Wapentake and Liberty of Holderness. Nunkeeling Priory for Benedictine nuns was built by Agnes de Arches during the reign of King Stephen. Lord of the manor in 1823 was Harrington Hudson of Bessingby. Population at the time, which included Bewholme, was 243, with occupations including four farmers. A private asylum existed in the village.
