A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Mintlyn from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "MINTLYN, a parish in Freebridge-Lynn [registration] district, Norfolk; adjacent to the East Anglian railway, 2½ miles E by S of King's Lynn. Post town, [King's] Lynn. Acres: 1,100. Real property: £985. Population: 46. Houses: 4. The property belongs to R. Bagge, Esq. The living is a donative, not in charge, in the diocese of Norwich. The church is in ruins."
Mintlyn was originally classified as an extraparochial area, but was made a civil parish in 1858. From 1894 until 1935 it was part of Freebridge Lynn Rural District. In 1935 the civil parish was abolished and the area and its inhabitants were absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Bawsey. It is now considered one of Norfolk's lost settlements.
