The attractive village of Manthorpe near Grantham was first mentioned in 1185 and again in 1212, but was not a parish in the Middle Ages.

The pretty little church with its apple-green pews was built in the 19th century, and the village itself was the scene of the Manthorpe gathering in 1992.

Places : Menethorpe in Yorkshire
Posted by Manthorpe Webmaster on 5th Sep 2005 (16541 reads)

So far only one reference has been found to a person taking his name from Menethorpe: Hugh de Menethorpe, who was prebendary of Ulleskelf (which lies to the south-west of York, south of Tadcaster).

He was recorded between 1297 and 1301. There is no evidence at present of a Menethorpe family surviving after the medieval period.
