Tealby has a long and rich history that can be seen in its buildings, of which 31 are listed. It is thought that it was first settled in the 5th Century by East Germanic Taifali tribal people.

 

The Viking army settled in the village in the 9th Century and Viking connections can still be seen in old Danish names such as Teal-by itself, the ‘by’ meaning farmstead or village, ‘Thorpe’ meaning a secondary settlement, ‘Beck’ meaning stream, and ‘Smooting’ – a narrow passage between houses (The picturesque ford at the bottom of the narrow and steep Beck Hill is one of a number of beauty spots and leads out into the rolling hills of Bayons Park).
