What about the history of these towns? The 12th century is key for all of them: North Scarle is a village on the River Trent with a parish church dating from the 12th century. Saxilby has a 12th century church dedicated to Saint Botolph, as does Boston, which is said to be where the saint was given a grant of land to build a monastery in the 7th century. According to the history books, Saint Botolph was one of the earliest and most revered of East Anglian saints, and became known as the patron saint of wayfarers. Grimsby was a busy port and fishing village in the 12th century, but by the time our ancestors arrived in the late 17th - 18th, the town had suffered a decline. However, by the late 18th century the town is said to have revived a bit, and a new town hall was built. Maybe the Jewitts had something to do with that! This and more is what we hope to find out as our research continues.
A BBC news headline from 2013: "Geocache Hunter Trampled by Cows in North Scarle Field" actually an interesting story accompanied by another beautiful image of the wolds, complete with a textbook example of a verge.
And apparently a less than flattering movie entitled "Grimsby" directed by the infamous Sacha Baron Cohen is set to be released in 2016. Grrrrr.... already, I feel protective of this unfairly derided town... home to our ancestors. How dare they!
