Haceby is a hamlet in the civil parish of Newton and Haceby (where the population is included) in the district of North Kesteven, Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 8 miles (13 km) east from Grantham, 8 miles south from Sleaford, and 1 mile (1.6 km) south from the A52 road.

In the Domesday account the village is written as "Hazebi".[1] The -by suffix is a Scandinavian word ending, for a place name based on a personal name. It is suggested that the origin is Farmstead or village of Haddr.[2]

Haceby consists of a small number of houses, farm buildings,[1] and the Grade I listed redundant St Barbara's Church.[3] Although dedicated to St Barbara, it is also attributed to St Margaret or to both saints.[4]

Earthworks to the west of the village are still visible as the remains of a Roman Villa.[5] In 1818 a tessellated pavement and other Roman remains were discovered.[6]

The village's war memorial is found combined with that of Newton, in Newton's St Botolph Church.[7]
