Brotherton was historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire until 1974. The village was on the A1 road 2 miles (3 km) north of Knottingley, before the road was relocated. It is now on the A162, north of Ferrybridge, south of Fairburn. Brotherton is often mistaken as being in West Yorkshire; it is a North Yorkshire village.
According to the 2001 census Brotherton civil parish had a population of 672, rising to 728 at the 2011 Census.
Brotherton is the birthplace of Thomas of Brotherton, Earl of Norfolk, son of King Edward I and Margaret of France. Notable Brotherton residents include Ken Wharton (b 1950), a writer of Military History books, who lived in the village between 2005 and 2009.
