Patrington was a rural district in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England from 1894 to 1935.[1]

The district formed the south-eastern part of the county stretching from Hedon to Spurn.

The district was created by the Local Government Act 1894.[1]

In 1935 the district was abolished by a County Review Order made under the Local Government Act 1929.[1] and the area then formed part of the newly created Holderness Rural District.[2]

Under the Local Government Act 1972 the area became part of the larger Holderness borough in Humberside. Since 1996 it has formed part of a unitary East Riding of Yorkshire.
