Toynton St Peter, and its neighbours Toynton All Saints, and Toynton Fenside are listed three times in the Domesday Book of 1086, jointly as "Toantun" so it is not possible to distinguish which entry referred to which place. As a whole, "Toantun" consisted of 78 households and had a church.
The parish church is a Grade II listed building dedicated to Saint Peter and dating from the 14th century, although it was rebuilt in 1876 by James Fowler of Louth. It was built of greenstone and limestonewith some brick patching. It has a 15th-century tower and a 14th-century font.
The parish has a village hall.
