Location Information

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Edmondthorpe is a small village in Leicestershire, close to the border with Rutland. The population of the village is included in the civil parish of Wymondham. It has Danish origins.

The name Edmondthorpe is derived from a corrupted form of the Old English personal name ‘Eadmer’, in old records spelled variously, Edmersthorp (Domesday Book); Thorp Edmer; Thorp Emeri; Thorp Edmeer; Edmerthorp; or Thorp. The most likely origination of the name could be from the Saxon: ED = East; MUND = mound or barrier; THORPE = a street or village.
