The 8-carucate vill of Reighton, standing at the eastern end of the Yorkshire Wolds on the cliffs above Filey Bay, was divided in 1066 between 3 carucates belonging to the archbishop of York’s manor of Great Kelk, some 10 miles to the south (Yorks. 2E:14; SE:Hu6) and 5 carucates held as two manors by Tholf and another man, Tholf being named first. There is nothing to connect this Tholf with any of the others.
