This indicates a settlement was located here during the prehistoric period. There is significant evidence that Romans came to Ullesthorpe in the 1st Century AD because Roman coins, roof tiles and pottery have been recovered, as well as nearby Roman roads.After the fall of the Romans, settlers from the continent and Scandinavia began to move to Ullesthorpe. At certain times, the Saxons controlled the local area. However, a major influence came from the Danes. The name 'Ullesthorpe' derives from Old Scandinavian which means "the settlement of a man called Ulfr". Other villages near Ullesthorpe were also highly influenced by the Danes and therefore their names are derived from the Scandinavian language as well.
