Keisby is a small hamlet in the district of South Kesteven, in Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 6 miles (10 km) north-west from Bourne and 9 miles (14 km) south-east from Grantham. It is in the civil parish of Lenton, Keisby and Osgodby.

History[edit]

Keisby comes from an Old Norse term meaning "Kisi's farmstead or village".[1] The village is mentioned in the Domesday account,[2] and has had different spellings over the years, from Chisebi to Kisebi and Kysebi.[1]

The English surname Kisby (and variants) is believed to originate from Keisby.[3]

Modern times[edit]

Keisby is part of the Lenton, Keisby and Osgodby ecclesiastical parish, and The North Beltisloe Group of parishes in the Deanery of Beltisloe.[4] As of 2014 the incumbent is the Revd Mike Doyle.[4] There is no separate church, services taking place in the parish church at Lenton.
