I can't remember in all the correspondence if you have found out where River
Bridge is - the following is from Genuki -
"RIVER BRIDGE, in the parish of Eastrington, wapentake and liberty of
Howdenshire, and wapentake of Harthill; 5 miles W. of South Cave. Four or
five houses situated on the east bank of the river Foulness (also known as
the Market Weighton Canal) where it crosses the Howden to Hull road. "
So - I think you'll find it under Eastrington, as it is so small and part of
that parish. If you search Eastrington you may find River Bridge listed.
I hope this helps.

I haven't found River Bridge in the 1871 census, either. My Arnolds were
from River Bridge. They had moved away by the 1841 census, but the town is
so small, I thought we might have some ancestors in common.
Edward Arnold (1783-1838) moved from Howden about 1823 to River Bridge and
from there to Patrington about 1834. His wife was Sarah Eller (1788-1873).
They had nine kids. The last seven married in Patrington, but the first
two -- Easter born 1814 and Mary born 1816 -- might have married while
living in River Bridge. I don't know who either girl married.
