Early-attested site in the Parish of Harpole
Flitnell Barn (6″). No early forms have been found but we may compare the field-names Fletynhyll t. Hy 7 (Rothwell), Flittenhill 1650 (Green's Norton), and Flitnells in Gayton infra 91.All these seem to be compounds of OE (ge )fliten ,'disputed,' and the meaning must be 'hill over which there was some quarrel or dispute as to ownership.' Cf. Flitteridge (PN Sx 346) and Fleet Fm supra 29.
