The windmill is shown on a plan of the allotments of Wigginton moor dating from 1769. On the 10 February 1821 it was advertised for sale in the Yorkshire gazette. It was blown down in January 1839; its re-erection was opposed as it was considered to be a nuisance to travelers stopping to pay the toll at the nearby turnpike gate.
