In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Harpham like this:

HARPHAM, a village and a parish in Driffield district, E. R. Yorkshire. The village stands near the Hull and Scarborough railway, 1 mile N by E of Burton-Agnes r. station, and 5 NE of Great Driffield; was the birth-place of St. John of Beverley; and has a post-office under Hull. The parish comprises 1,970 acres. ...

Real property, £3,002. Pop., 274. Houses, 47. The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged to the St. Quintins, from the Conquest till 1777, and has vestiges of their mansion. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Burton-Agnes, in the diocese of York. The church is mainly ancient, with a tower, but was partly rebuilt in 1827; and it has stained glass windows with the arms and pedigree of the St, Quintins, and contains three brasses with effigies, a stone coffin, a monument of a St. Quintin, and a very curious font. There are a Wesleyan chapel and a national school.
