The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Sudtune in the Yarlestre hundred. The manor was recorded as in the possession of Orm, son of Gamal, but was granted to Hugh, son of Baldric after the Norman invasion.[2]


The village lies within the Thirsk and Malton UK Parliament constituency. It is part of the Thirsk electoral division of North Yorkshire County Council and the Whitestonecliffe ward of Hambleton District Council.[3] The population of this ward taken at the 2011 census was 1,863.[4]

The local Parish Council has six members including the Chair.[5]


The village lies to the west of the limestone escarpment of Sutton Bank. The nearest settlements are Thirlby 1 mile (1.6 km) to the north; Bagby 2 miles (3.2 km) to the south west and Cold Kirby 3.2 miles (5.1 km) to the east.[3] The low level geology of the area is of Devensian clay on beds of lower Jurassic lias.[6] There is a small waterway, Sutton Beck, that is part of the tributary system that joins the River Swale near Topcliffe.

According to the 2001 UK Census the population was 268 of which 230 were over the age of sixteen and 149 of those were in employment. There were 143 dwellings of which 89 were detached.[7]
