The name Burythorpe was recorded in the 1096 Domesday Book as Bergetorp and is of Old Norse origin. The first element is Bjorg, a feminine personal name. The second is þorp, meaning "farmstead, hamlet" (c.f. Danish torp, German Dorf).
The Bay Horse public house which closed in April 2014 was reopened in October 2016 after a local group campaigned to have it recognised as an important asset of the community. The pub is listed in Baines 1823 directory along with a reference to Francis Consitt who is stated to have died in Burythorpe in 1768 at the age of 150.
