A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Thorpe-Satchville from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "THORPE-SATCHVILLE, a chapelry in Twyford parish, Leicester; 5 miles S by W of Melton-Mowbray [railway] station. Post town, Melton-Mowbray. Acres: 4,278. Real property: £2,116. Population: 171. Houses: 38. The property is much subdivided. The living is annexed to Hungerton [Lincolnshire]."
Thorpe-Satchville in Leicestershire, England was a chapelry in the parish of Twyford until 1866 when it became a civil parish. It was located south of Melton Mowbray.
The parish was part of Melton Mowbray Rural District from 1894 until 1935 when the rural district was abolished and replaced by the Melton and Belvoir Rural District which covered a larger area. A year after the introduction of the new rural district its parishes were reorganized and reduced in number from 68 to 25.
In 1974 a new nationwide organization of local government was introduced in which rural and urban districts were replaced by "non-metropolitan" districts. In the northeast of Leicestershire this meant little save for the fact that the principal town of Melton Mowbray, formerly a separate urban district, was now governed by the same body (Melton District or Borough) as the rural area that surrounded it.
Maps on the place-pages for Belvoir Rural District and Melton and Belvoir Rural District illustrate the location of the various parishes and the geographical and administrative changes that occurred in 1936.
