King’s Lynn and West Norfolk is a local government district, as well as a borough in West Norfolk, with its administration offices based in King’s Lynn. The King in question in the name King’s Lynn was Henry VIII, as he acquired the town when he dissolved the monasteries in 1538. Originally the town had been known as Bishop’s Lynn as it was the property of the bishops of Norwich. The “Lynn” part of the town’s name may have come from the Celtic word “lin” meaning a lake or pool. King’s Lynn was granted a market charter in the 12th century and later charters also permitted it to hold an annual fair. This fair continues to the present day, having begun in 1537.
