The Anglican parish register dates from 1653 for baptisms and burials, from 1754 for marriages.
We have a handful of register entries from the Anglican Parish Church. Your additions and corrections are welcome.
The LFHS has published several marriage indexes and a burial index for the Westwold Deanery to make your search easier.

This parish and village in the northern Lincolnshire Wolds, is 3 miles north-west of Caistor on the road to Brigg. The parish itself is a long, thin format, running roughly north and south, and just west of Clixby parish.
If you are planning a visit:
The village is just south of the A1084 trunk road between Brigg and Caistor. The road drops down into the village, but there are still great views of the countryside.
The old Viking Way passes through the heart of the village.

His wife's sister was the wife of Alfred TENNYSON.
