High Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire

The High Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire is a current High Sheriff title which has existed since 1996.cite book | last = Omerod | first =W.M. | | title =The Lord Lieutenants & High Sheriffs of Yorkshire 1066-2000| publisher =Department of History of the University of York| date = 2000 | url =http://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/index.php?product_id=423| isbn = 1871647746] For around 1,000 years the entire area of Yorkshire was covered by a single High Sheriff of Yorkshire. After the Local Government Act 1972 the title was split to cover several newly created counties. Most of the former area of the East Riding became part of the county of Humberside and under the High Sheriff of Humberside title. Humberside was abolished in 1996 and a High Sheriff title was created for the newly reconstituted East Riding of Yorkshire.

Below is a list of the sheriffs.
