The borough was responsible for furnishing the porchroom and Trigge undertook to supply books to the value of "one hundred poundes or thereaboutes".

"The library was the first in England to be endowed for use outside an institution such as a school or college.

It is perhaps slightly misleading to call it "the first public library" but nevertheless its use was not the prerogative of a private group"

"It is known that at the beginning of the eighteenth century the Services were once a Sunday at Somerby Church, and once at Humby Chapel, and this arrangement continued down to a time within the memory of persons still living.

In 1876 the Chapel was re-roofed and the Interior renovated, the whitewash was cleaned off the walls, open seats were substituted for square pews, and a new font provided. Parts at least of the old pulpit and reading desk were preserved in their modern successors. 

After this restoration, services continued until 1961, when the Chapel was closed. Shortly afterwards, all the contents were removed and the building abandoned until 1979, when the Lincolnshire Old Churches Trust was granted a lease of it. After repairs to the roof, bellcote and floor the Chapel was reopened on 20 July 1980"

"The Screen appears to have had a somewhat chequered history.

A faculty was issued in 1946 for the provision of a children's corner but no mention is made of moving the Screen.

It is unknown whether the Reverend Richard Bingham moved it to its present position and if that was the reason for his nameplate.
