Kingerby is a village and former civil parish in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 5 miles (8.0 km) north west from the town of Market Rasen. The hamlet of Bishop Bridge lies about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) to the south-west.

In 1936 the parish became part of Osgodby parish.[1][2]

The parish church is dedicated to Saint Peter and is a Grade I listed building cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust; it became redundant in 1981.[3] It dates from the early 11th century and is built of Ironstone. There are three monuments in the church to 13th- and 14th-century knights. There are also several marble tablets to the Young family of Kingerby Hall.[3] To the north and east of the church are scheduled earthworks of an ecclesiastical enclosure in which Elsham Priory was located.[4]

Kingerby Hall, or Manor, is a Grade II listed building dating from 1812. It is situated on the scheduled site of a motte and bailey castle and a later moated manor house. The castle was built sometime prior to 1216, in which year it burnt down. In the 12th and 13th centuries a village grew up around the castle, but in the 17th century the village population declined.[5][6][7]
