In 1880, a detached part of Asgarby parish (in the Fens) was annexed to Carrington. In 1885, Asgarby Fen and Carr Dyke Bank were transferred from Asgarby to Howell parish (near Sleaford). You will note that there is a village of Asgarby just west of Howell.
The name derives from the Old Scandinavian Asgeirr+by, meaning "farmstead of a man named Asgeirr". It appears as Asgerebi in the 1086 Domesday Book. [A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991].
