In 1823 Little Weighton was in the civil parish of Rowley and the Wapentake of Harthill. Occupations at the time included six farmers and yeomen, a shoemaker, a blacksmith, a tailor, a shopkeeper, and the landlord of The Black Horse public house. A carrier operated between the village and Beverley and Hull once a week.[1]

Little Weighton was served by Little Weighton railway station on the Hull and Barnsley Railway between 1885 and 1955.[2]

Notable residents include one time David Bowie bassist Trevor Bolder, and ex-Hull City players Stan McEwan and Sam Ricketts.[citation needed]
