In the Middle Ages, Spurn Point was home to the port of Ravenspurn (a.k.a. Ravenspur or Ravensburgh), where Henry Bolingbroke landed in 1399 on his return to dethrone Richard II.

It was also where Sir Martin De La See led the local resistance against Edward IV's landing on 14 March 1471, as he was returning from his six months' exile in the Netherlands.
