Thrumpton, Nottinghamshire

Thrumpton, in the Rushcliffe Wapentake of Nottinghamshire, comes from the Old Norse male personal name Þórmóðr and the Old English tun ‘farm, settlement’. Thus it is an Anglo-Scandinavian hybrid name.

There is a place of the same name, with the same origin, in the Bassetlaw Wapentake.
