Ketsby

Hob Uid: 354252
Location :
Lincolnshire
East Lindsey
South Ormsby cum Ketsby
Grid Ref : TF3648076690
Summary : Probable Medieval settlement (tofts, building, trackways, and crofts) seen as cropmarks and earthworks.
More information : [Area TF 36377683] The lost village of Ketsby had a
church, St. Margaret's, which became ruinous in the 18th century.
A priest was last instituted in 1597. A market and a fair were
held here.
Air photographs show traces of earthworks. (1-4)

A major field system in places over-ridden by quarrying. There
are no identifiable crofts or steadings.
It is considered that the village was probably ribboned
adjacent to the main road, where early buildings (see 25") have
been demolished, modern construction has taken place; and that,
in effect, Ketsby is shrinkage only.
Local tradition places the church at TF 3628 7689 but no surface
traces are evident. (5)

The site of the dmv is being bulldozed and part is already
levelled and sown. Medieval pottery found includes Stamford Ware
recovered by Miss J Carter and Mr J Watson. A medieval barn at
Ketsby House was demolished in 1966. Probably 14th c. (6)

The Medieval settlement referred to by the previous authorities was
seen as earthworks, on 1940s air photographs, to the north and east
of Ketsby House, and mapped from good quality air photographs. The
remains have been ploughed flat and are now visible as cropmarks. The
remains of tofts and crofts are visible as conjoined rectilinear
enclosures, ranging in size from 120m by 30m to 60m by 25m, and are
centred at TF 3648 7669 and TF 3629 7695. The most coherent area
of tofts is to the east of Ketsby house and within one of these is
the possible remains of a small building centred at TF 3648 7675.
Various trackways are visible running between the tofts and crofts.
the church referred to by authority 5 was not visible on the
available air photographs. (Morph No. LI.84.1.1-10)
