In the 1086 Domesday Book Tothby is listed as "Touedebi", consisting of three households, 20 acres (0.1 km2) of meadow and 12 acres (0.05 km2) of woodland.
Today Tothby considered a deserted medieval village, and the only extant property is Tothby Manor House, a Grade II listed building dating from the mid-17th century with alterations around 1840. Built of red brick, the house stands behind a moated enclosure, the site of the early Tothby Manor, home of the founder of the 14th-century church of St Wilfrid, Alford. The Manor was bought by Sir Robert Christopher in the mid-17th century when the present farmhouse was first built.
