Settlement of North Scarle



Reference Name MLI80480

Name:
Settlement of North Scarle

Summary:
The present settlement of North Scarle dates from the medieval period.

Location:
NORTH SCARLE, NORTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
North Scarle is first mentioned in twelfth century documents. Manorial rights to North Scarle, Swinderby, Eagle Woodhouse and Eagle were granted to the Templars by Henry II (after 1154). By 1185 only Eagle was producing an income. The name Scarle possibly means 'the dirty, mucky clearing', and 'North' is to distinguish it from South Scarle in Nottinghamshire. {1}{2}
The church is essentially Early English, although there is some evidence for a Norman church. {3}
There were between 30 and 40 families recorded in North Scarle in the early eighteenth century. {7}
There were 595 people living in North Scarle in 1856, which covered 2013 acres. {4}
Two abraded medieval sherds were found during a watching brief at 28 High Street. {5}{6}
