There is evidence of a Chapel of Ease and a burial ground adjacent to Eastoft Hall, but all physical traces have since vanished.
The Anglican Church is dedicated to Saint Bartholomew and it stands in Yorkshire. The church was built in 1855 and the parish registers date from that year. Earlier events are recorded in either Crowle parish records or in Adlingfleet.
Prior to 25 Sept. 1855, this parish was only a township in Crowle parish. On 25 Sept. 1855, the parish was formed out of parts of the parishes of Adlingfleet (in Yorkshire) and Crowle (in Lincolnshire). Technically, the parish is only partly in the Isle of Axholme.
The parish was in the ancient Manley Wapentake in the West Lindsey district and parts of Lindsey. Parts of the parish were in the East Division of the West Riding of Yorkshire. In fact, Eastoft, Yorkshire, and Eastoft, Lincolnshire, are separate civil parishes, although they are combined ecclesiastically. The church and the school stand in Yorkshire.
By 1911, the roads here were under the control of the Crowle Urban District Council.
In the 1972 government redistricting, this parish became part of the Boothferry District, which is now in the County of Humberside (formerly Lindsey, Lincolnshire).
