According to the A Dictionary of British Place Names 'Muston' is derived from either the 12th-century "mouse infected farmstead", or a "farmstead of a man called Musi", being an Old Norse person name with the Old English 'tun' (farmstead or enclosure).[2]

Muston is listed in the Domesday Book as "Mustone", in the Torbar Hundred of the East Riding of Yorkshire. The settlement included seven households, twenty-one villagers, six smallholders, and ten ploughlands. In 1066 Karli son of Karli held the Lordship, this transferring in 1086 to Gilbert of Ghent who also became Tenant-in-chief to King William I.[3]

In 1823 Muston was a village and civil parish in the Wapentake of Dickering in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The ecclesiastical parish was a Vicarage held by the Archdeacon of Cleveland, Francis Wrangham. Population at the time was 350. Occupations included fourteen farmers, two butchers, two carpenters, three grocers, a tanner, a bricklayer, a corn miller, a shoemaker, an earthenware dealer, a tailor, a blacksmith, and the landlady of The Cross Keys public house. A daily coach linked Muston to Hull and Scarborough. A carrier operated between the village and Bridlington, Hunmanby and Filey twice weekly.[4]

The 1863 parish church of All Saints' was designated a Grade II listed building in 1966.[5]

There is a derelict windmill on the outskirts of the village, just off the A1039 road. References to a mill first appear in 1341.[6] The current mill is thought to have been built in 1826 and was in use until 1932.[7]


According to the 2011 UK Census, Muston parish had a population of 339,[1] an increase on the 2001 UK census figure of 325.[8]

Muston is on the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail, a long distance footpath.

In July and August, Muston hosts its annual week-long scarecrow festival.[9]

The village cricket team, Muston CC, plays in the Derwent Valley 'A' league.[10]
