Hawthorpe from the south

Hawthorpe is mentioned in the Domesday Book as "Awartorp", in the Beltisloe Hundred of Kesteven. It comprised 2 households, 2 villagers and 4 freemen, with 2.9 ploughlands, a meadow of 8 acres (0.032 km2) and woodland of 320 acres (1.3 km2). In 1066 the Lord was Healfdene; after 1086 Lordship was given to Alfred of Lincoln.[1][2]

In the 1872 White's Directory the two hamlets of Bulby and Hawthorpe were grouped as Bulby-cum-Hawthorpe forming the eastern side of Irnham parish, being a joint township with a population of 180 in 1,767 acres (7.2 km2) "of fertile land". About 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) of Bulby-cum-Hawthorpe land was purchased by Rev. William Watson Smith in about 1840, who built on it the Elizabethan-style Bulby House and grounds. By 1872, Bulby House and 1,100 acres (4.5 km2) of township land was owned by Gilbert Heathcote-Drummond-Willoughby, 1st Earl of Ancaster (Lord Aveland), who was lord of the manor. A moated area evident at the time was said to be the site of Bulby Hall which is "supposed to have been burnt down in the Barons' wars".[3]

In the 1885 Kelly's Directory Hawthorpe is written as having an 1881 population of 70, and as a joint township with the hamlet of Bulby for the support of the poor. Hawthorpe belonged principally to Lord Aveland, who lived at Bulby House.[4]

Listed buildings in the hamlet centre on Hawthorpe Farm, including a 17th-century farmhouse, 19th-century cottages, and 17th- to 19th-century barns and stables, all Grade II.[5][6][7]
