Greetwell, North Lincolnshire in "A Topographical Dictionary of England" edited by Samuel Lewis (1848)

GREETWELL (All Saints), a parish, in the wapentake of Lawress, parts of Lindsey, union and county of Lincoln, 2¼ miles (E.) from Lincoln; containing 42 inhabitants. At the Domesday survey, the manor was held by Roger de Busli; the lands are now leased by the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln to many persons. The parish comprises about 1300 acres, situated on the north bank of the Witham, and derives its name from a fine spring which sends forth a copious stream to that river. A branch of the Dallyson family was formerly seated here. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £52; patrons and appropriators, the Dean and Chapter. The church is a small structure, anciently much larger than at present.
