Bonby is a village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England, and approximately 4 miles (6 km) south from Barton-upon-Humber. According to the 2001 Census it had a population of 481, increasing to 532 at the 2011 census.[1]

The village was recorded in the Domesday Book under the name of "Bundebi".[2]

The Grade II listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Andrew.[3] The church has an Early English nave and chancel, and a 17th-century brick tower. Bonby held a small priory, established by the Benedictine priory of St Fromund in Normandy. The priory was transferred to the Carthusian order at Beauvale, Nottinghamshire.[4]
