Quadring Eaudike is a hamlet in the South Holland district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies approximately 1 mile (2 km) east from the A152 road, and 2 miles (3 km) south-east from Donington. Quadring Eaudike is within the civil parish of Quadring , a village 1 mile to the west.

The name Quadring, historically Quedhaveringe, is from the Old English meaning "muddy settlement of the family or followers of a man called Haefer".[1]

Quadring Eaudike once contained a chapel, noted by Thomas Allen as not remaining in 1834.[2] The previous chapel of ease was referred to in 1872 at which time a Primitive and a Free Methodist chapel existed.[3]

In 1885 directory occupation listings included ten farmers, two blacksmiths, and the landlord of the New Inn public house.[4] By 1933 there were seven farmers, one of whom was a cottage farmer and another a collector of Crown taxes, six smallholders, a fruit grower, and a beer seller.[5]
