The LFHS has published several indexes for the Louthesk Deanery to make your search easier.
Parish registers are now on file at the Society of Genealogists, covering baptisms 1561-1976, marriages 1561-1975, burials 1561-1978, and monument inscriptions 1700-1753.
Copies of the parish registers are held at the Lincolnshire Archives and cover the same period as the SOG above.
Yarburgh had chapels for the Wesleyan Methodists (built in 1818), the Primitive Methodists (1850) and the Free Methodists [later United Methodists] (1853). For information and assistance in researching these chapels, see our non-conformist religions page.
Yarburgh (Yarborough) is both a village and parish in the north of Lincolnshire. The parish covers about 1,300 acres. The parish lies south of Grimsby and north of Louth and the eastern edge of the parish holds a portion of the Louth Navigation Canal. Little Grimsby parish lies to the west, Alvingham parish to the southeast and Covenham St. Mary to the north.
The village sits in a small vale four miles NNE of Louth.
If you are planning a visit:
To reach the village, one can either turn east off the A16 just north of Louth, or, if traveling up the coast, can turn west off of the A1031 trunk road just south of Grainthorpe.
There are many caravan and camping facilities along the coast, not ten miles distant, and at Grimoldby, about five miles to the southeast.
The name Yarburgh is from the Old English eorth+burh, for "the earthwork or fortification built of earth". In the 1086 Domesday Book it first appears as Gereburg and later as Jerdeburc. Yarborough is a widely found alternative spelling. [A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991]
