On 28th October 1510, William Sedyngton of Flambrough claimed sanctuary at the church of St John, Beverley, for debt.

On 28th October 1880, during a storm, the Saffron, Jabez, and Earl of Derby separately crashed into the piers at Withernsea and Hornsea, 2 at Withernsea and 1 at Hornsea; both piers were substantially damaged. The Hornsea pier had only opened 5 months before, and was completely demolished in 1897. The Withernsea pier had been open 2 years, and was to have several more ships crash into it before being demolished, apart from the 2 remaining towers.

On 28th October 1910, the Aldbrough Rocket Brigade rescued the crew of the trawler Castor of Grimsby, which ran aground on Aldbrough beach, whilst the Hornsea Lifeboat crew took an hour against high winds to row to the site. Later the Secretary of the Hornsea branch of the RNLI said that Hornsea did not have strong men like they had in Bridlington and it was the worst place on the coast to get a lifeboat.
