Habrough is a village and civil parish in North East Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 8 miles (13 km) north-west from Grimsby, 3 miles (5 km) inland from the River Humber, and on the southern edge of the A180 road.
Habrough is listed in the 1086 Domesday Book, with 28 households, a mill and a saltern. There was a manor house here, of which only earthworks remain south east from the church. It belonged during the 13th and 14th centuries to the de Saltfletby family, and later the Skipwith family. The manor was reputedly abandoned when the Skipwith line died out. Today the village has land owned by the Earl of Yarborough and is situated less than 1 mile (1.6 km) away from the Brocklesby House Estate of the Earl of Yarborough.
The name Habrough is found in old records as "Haburgh".
