Ewerby Thorpe

The hamlet is the site of the ancient village of Austhorpe. In the Domesday account Austhorpe is written as "Oustorp". It consisted of 8 villagers, with 3 ploughlands, a meadow of 44 acres (0.18 km2) and woodland of 23 acres (0.093 km2). In 1086 lordship of the manor transferred to Kolsveinn of Lincoln.[1][2]

The land immediately to the north-west, south of the River Slea and stretching to South Kyme, was known as Ewerby Thorpe Fen. In the 13th century it was the part of the manorial lands of William de la Laund. He gave Ewerby Thorpe Fen, then called le Mykeldyke, to Haverholme Priory.[3][4]
