Felixkirk is a village and civil parish in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England. The village is situated about three miles north-east of Thirsk.HistoryThe village is named for after the local church, which is dedicated to St Felix. St Felix, a Burgundian, travelled with St Paulinus converting the Saxons in England in the seventh century. It may have not been known by its current name at the time of the Norman invasion as it does not appear in this form in the Domesday Book. Instead it is known as Fridebi with the manor lands shared between Gamal, son of Kalri and Ligulf. The lands passing after the invasion to Hugh, son of Baldric, who made Gerard of Boltby, lord of the manor.There are competing etymologies for the old name of Fridebi. It is recorded in some texts as being the same as the old place name of Firby near Snape Castle in Bedale, and which means Peaceful Place from the Danish word for peace which is fred. Alternatively it has been recorded as Freda's dwelling along the same naming convention for hamlets with Danish influences at that time. Freda as a personal name in Danish, would also mean PeaceThe nearby hill, Mount St John, was the location of a Preceptory of the Order of St John of Jerusalem built in the 11th century. After the dissolution of the monasteries, the Preceptory buildings were handed to the Archbishop of York. In 1720 the buildings were pulled down and a new manor house built. Still known as Mount St John, it is a grade II* listed building.
