Early Origins of the Maplethorp family
Lincolnshire at Mablethorpe, a parish, in the union of Louth, Marsh division of the hundred of Calceworth. "This place is supposed to have obtained its name from the great number of maple-trees with which it formerly abounded, and the stumps of which are still to be seen at low water." CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
