Frithville, Lincolnshire

Frithville is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies about 5 miles north of Boston on the B1183, and in the fenland area, West Fen. The name Frith comes from the Old English "fyrhoe", meaning wood or woody pasture. The first mention of Frith is in 1323 when it was called Le Frith; later in 1512 it was called "The Kings Frith beside Boston". Formerly extra-parochial land, Frithville was enclosed in 1802 and made a parochial township in 1812.
