King's Lynn, known until 1537 as Bishop's Lynn and locally as Lynn, is a seaport and market town in Norfolk, England, 98 miles north of London, 36 miles north-east of Peterborough, 44 miles north-north-east of Cambridge and 44 miles west of Norwich. The population is 42,800.
The etymology of King's Lynn is uncertain. The name Lynn may signify a body of water near the town – the Welsh word llyn, means a lake; but the name is plausibly of Anglo-Saxon origin, from lean meaning a tenure in fee or farm. As the 1085 Domesday Book mentions saltings at Lena , an area of partitioned pools or small lakes may have existed there at the time. The salt may have added to Herbert de Losinga's interest in the modest parish.
