About East Riding Archives

East Riding Archives are the principal archive repository for the East Riding of Yorkshire. We exist to collect and preserve the historic records of the East Riding and promote and support their use for research by everybody. We hold over 3000 collections on over 2 miles of shelving at The Treasure House in Beverley. Our records date from 1125 to the present day. We also hold over 12,000 items in our local studies collection.

East Riding Archives are responsible for the parish records of the Archdeaconry of the East Riding, which covers much of East Yorkshire as well as the City of Hull and the Scarborough area. The parish registers in the East Riding Collection record the key events in the lives of the people of the East Riding, including baptisms, banns, marriages and burials.

As well as the parish records on the Archive service preserves the documentary heritage of the East Riding, including charters, official minutes, accounts, manorial records, letters, diaries, maps, photographs, plans, criminal records and the East Riding Registry of Deeds. We are always interested in hearing about any potential gifts or deposits of archival materials so please do contact us if you'd like to talk about donating your records.
