Hutton Buscel is a village in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The 2011 census recorded a parish population of 320.


Hutton-Buscel derives its name from it having been the "High town of the Buscel or Bushel family" whose ancestors arrived following the Norman conquest.[1][2]

St Matthew's Church

The parish church of St Matthew is a Grade I listed building. It was built in the 12th century with additions in the 13th and 15th centuries and it underwent restoration by William Butterfield in 1855. Among the monuments in the church is one dedicated to Richard Osbaldeston, Bishop of London, who died in 1764.[3]

In 1823, the village was noted, as Hutton Bushel, with population as 419.[1] The manor of Hutton-Buscel was purchased from the Osbaldeston family in 1839, by Marmaduke Langley. By 1848 the population had increased to 506 in the township and 811 in the parish.[2]
