Parish History

The church of All Saints was rebuilt in 1848; the original church on the site is thought to be mediaeval. The present church was designed by George Gilbert Scott.

This North Lincolnshire parish should not be confused with Saxby by Owmby, Lincolnshire or other villages elsewhere in England with the same name

"SAXBY (All Saints),a parish, in the union of Glandford-Brigg, N. division of the wapentake of Yarborough, parts of Lindsey, county of Lincoln, 5 miles (S. W.) from Barton-upon-Humber; containing 287 inhabitants. The parish comprises 2341a. 1r. 11p. The soil is light, resting on chalk, and there are several chalk-pits, from which a material is raised for mending the roads, and also for manure. The surface is elevated, and the scenery of pleasing character, being embellished with some thriving plantations. Saxby Hall is a neat mansion, and the village is agreeably situated on a declivity of the Wolds, overlooking the vale of the Ancholme. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £12. 18. 6½., and in the gift of the family of Barton: the tithes have been commuted for £432. 17., and the glebe comprises 8 acres. The church has a tower on the south side of the nave, and contains over the altar a beautiful painting of Our Saviour restoring sight to Bartimeus, presented by the patrons."
