This parish church was created from the nave of Bridlington Priory church after the dissolution. The Priory of Augustinian Canons was founded between 1109-14 and dissolved in 1537. It was one of the largest and wealthiest houses of the order. Henry V was one of the earliest pilgrims. In 1380 the house contained the prior, twenty-four canons and one lay-brother. The last prior, William Wode, was executed in 1537 after the Pilgrimage of Grace and twenty six canons were expelled.
