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

SAXBY (St. Helen), a parish, in the E. division of the wapentake of Aslacoe, parts of Lindsey, union and county of Lincoln, 4 miles (S. E.) from Spittal; containing 140 inhabitants. This place has long been in the possession of the Saundersons, now represented by the Earl of Scarborough. The parish is bordered on the west by the Roman road from Lincoln to the Humber, and by two inconsiderable streams which, uniting at the north-eastern extremity, form the river Ancholme. It comprises about 1400 acres. The substratum abounds with stone, which is quarried for inferior kinds of building, and for repairing the roads. The living is a vicarage, with the rectory of Firsby united, valued in the king's books at £7. 4. 1.; net income, £46; patron and impropriator, the Earl of Scarborough: the glebe contains 14 acres. The church, a neat edifice in the Grecian style, is the place of interment for the family of the earl: some foundations have been discovered near it, supposed to be the remains of a Roman villa.
