Thonock is a small settlement in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 2 miles (3 km) north from the town of Gainsborough, and on the A159 road

Thonock existed as a small village at the time of Domesday Book of 1086, when it consisted of five households.[1]

Thonock is listed as a deserted medieval village, but there are no visible earthworks. It existed as a part of Gainsborough in the early 14th century, and as a small settlement, including the hamlet of Havercroft, in later centuries, when High and Low (Nether) Thonock were mentioned.[2] Havercroft lost settlement was probably at the west of Thonock - possibly in the present parish of Morton or Blyton. There are no earthworks to confirm an exact site.[3]

Thonock civil parish was created from part of Gainsborough parish in 1894, but was later dissolved in 1974.[4]

A golf club is based at Thonock Park.[5]
