MANTHORPE, a hamlet, in the parish of Withamon-the-Hill, union of Bourne, wapentake of Beltisloe, parts of Kesteven, county of Lincoln, 3¾ miles (S. W. by S.) from the town of Bourne.[1]

Manthorpe is a suburb to the north of Grantham and was in history a village known as Little Gonerby- cum-Manthorpe. The Brownlow family, local landowners, built a road in 1810 joining Grantham to Belton.
