Weaverthorpe is a village in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England. It is 13 miles from Scarborough.

Weaverthorpe was listed as being in the wapentake of Buckrose.

It contains East and West Lutton (formerly Luttons Ambo). Gypsy Race beck runs alongside the main street.

Bronze Age settlements have been found at nearby Cowlam. There was a vill on the site in the period of Viking/Norse settlement when it was known as Wifretorp. The village's name is linked to a certain 'Vithfari' (possibly Wolfrith?). In the Domesday Book there is a mention of Wivetorp. After the Norman conquest it was held by the Archbishop of York under Michael FitzHerbert. In the 12th century the church of St. Andrew was granted to Nostell Priory until 1268. Lucy, daughter of Piers FitzHerbert, married Sir William de Ros of Helmsley-in-Holderness [alias Hamlake) (died circa 1264) who acquired the manor of 'Wyverthorp'. However by 1307 the deed had been transferred to Mary, (nee 'de Roos') wife of Sir William de Brewes (Braose), in compensation for the disseisin of the Manor of Little Bookham in Surrey.


[edit] Church of St. Andrew

The tower is reputed to be a mix of late Saxon and Norman in construction. The chancel is separated from the nave by a Norman arch. The font is probably Norman. Above the south door of the nave is a sun-dial, with a part-illegible fragment of an inscription in Saxon characters, claimed as reading: " In honore Sancti andre - Herbert W.... Hoc Monasterium ". It has been claimed as a memorial to Herbert de Winchester (died 1120/1130) who built the church. Herbert of Winchester was chamberlain to King Henry I. His son William FitzHerbert was granted by King John, the lands of "Launsborough, Collerthorpe, Wyderthorpe, Holperthorpe and the two Lottum" . The unexplained reference to "ecclesiam de Clera[m]" in the charter of King Stephen relating to "Wiverthorpe", might refer to a chapel attached to a local manor house.

A Victorian benefactor of Weaverthorpe, and landowner, was Sir Tatton Sykes.
