of Market Stainton, part of Lindsey,
Stainton, Market (St. Michael), a parish, in the union of Horncastle, N. division of the wapentake of Gartree, parts of Lindsey, county of Lincoln, 7 miles (E. by N.) from Wragby; containing 184 inhabitants. This was formerly a market-town, from which circumstance it derived the adjunct to its name; and in the centre of the present village is a spacious green which was the ancient market-place. The market was long ago discontinued, and a fair held on the 29th of October was removed to Horncastle in 1768. The parish comprises 1123 acres. Stainton Hall, a handsome mansion, was built by the late John Loft, Esq. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £66; patron and incumbent, the Rev. John Loft. The church is a neat structure, repaired and beautified by the late Mr. Loft. (A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848), pp. 170-175)
Will of Nathaniel WADE, citizen and draper of St. Matthew Friday Street, London mentions Market Stainton, and also names friend Richard COMBES.
