Summary history of Toseland

Three miles north-east of St Neots. A small village, but the centre of the hundred of Toseland, to which it has given its name. The name is derived from a Dane, named Toll, who was slain at Tempsford in 921, and is one of the very rare cases in which a person who gave his name to a village can actually be identified. There is a small Norman church and a red-brick manor house; and a large stone if the churchyard is said to be the ancient hundred-stone.
