This place was an ancient parish in county Lincoln and became a modern Civil Parish when those were established.
The parish was in the ancient Walshcroft Wapentake in the West Lindsey district in the parts of Lindsey.
In March, 1887, this parish gave up a few of its fields to enlarge Buslingthorpe Civil Parish.
The citizens of Linwood have decided to have periodic Parish Meetings rather than a formal Parish Council. You may discuss civic or political issues with them, but they will NOT do family history searches for you.
