THEMELTHORPE, a small scattered village, on an eminence, 3 miles W.N.W. of Reepham, has in its parish 94 souls, and 625A. 3R. 23P. of land, mostly belonging to S. Leeds, Esq., Sir R.P. Jodrell, and Lord Hastings. The latter is lord of the manor, (fine certain,) and patron of the Church (St. Andrew,) which is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £4. 2s. 8d., and consolidated with that of Bintree, in the incumbency of the Rev. Augustus Dashwood. The glebe here is 19A. 1R., and the tithes of this parish were commuted, in 1841, for £135 per annum. (See Bintree, page 346.)

Themelthorpe Common was enclosed in 1811, and is mostly in Foulsham parish.
