The hamlet of Thelveton was recorded in the Domesday book as Telvetun. In 1603, there were 40 communicants, and in 1737 there were about 100 inhabitants and the area was valued for tax purposes at £376.
Thelveton has a church, which is dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle. The church was constructed before 1466, and probably in the early 14th century; in 1736 it is described as being "a small building, consisting of a nave, chancel, and south porch, all tiled, and a square steeple". It was substantially refurbished in the Victorian period, giving the appearance of an entirely more modern construction, bar the 15th-century font it retains.
