Perlethorpe, in the Bassetlaw Wapentake of Nottinghamshire, was originally a simplex name from the Old Norse element þorp ‘outlying farm, settlement’. The first element derives from the family name Peverel and was added at a later date possibly because the estate became associated with this family. Perlethorpe is a joint parish with Budby.
