"By 1377 the senior male line of the Marmions had died out, and in that year the office of King's Champion at the coronation of King Richard II was fulfilled by Sir John Dymoke, who had married Margaret Ludlow, daughter of Sir Thomas Ludlow and Johanna Marmion, daughter of Sir Philip Marmion"

White's History, Gazetteer & Directory of Lincolnshire, 1856 states :-

"HALTHAM-UPON-BAIN, a small village in the pleasant valley of the river Bain, 4.5 miles S. of Horncastle, has in its parish 243 souls and 1395.A. 3R. 19P. of land, including 232A. of fen and 238A. of  woodland.

The Hon. Sir Henry Dymoke is lord of the manor, but a great part of the soil belongs to Sir J. H. Hawley.

The former is patron of the Church (St. Benedict,) which is a discharged rectory, united with Roughton, valued in K.B. at £8. 11s. 1d., and now at £401, in the incumbency of the Rev. John Dymoke, of Roughton Hall.

The tithes of this parish are commuted for about 190 acres.

The church is an ancient structure, which has suffered much from the hand of time, but has still some fine tracery in its east window.

Here is a Wesleyan Chapel, built in 1853.

The poor have the interest of £5, given by John Dymoke many years ago"
