"In 1766 he was elected as a Member of Parliament for Ilchester in Somerset, a seat he held until 1774, and then represented Grantham between 1774 and 1776, in which year he was raised to the peerage as Baron Brownlow, "of Belton in the County of Lincoln".

The peerage was chiefly in recognition of his father's services, and the name of his title refers to his paternal grandmother Anne Brownlow (Lady Cust), sister and heiress in her issue of John Brownlow, 1st Viscount Tyrconnel (1690-1754), of Belton House, and wife of Sir Richard Cust, 2nd Baronet.

In 1776 he was made a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and in 1783 was made a Fellow of the Royal Society"

Marble effigy of her husband by Emmeline 'Nina' Cust (1867-1955).

"Emmeline 'Nina' Cust (1867-1955) was an English writer, editor, translator and sculptor.

She was a member of The Souls, an upper class circle that challenged the conventions and attitudes of their class in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries ...

On 11 October 1893, Cust married another member of The Souls, Henry John Cockayne-Cust.

She supported her husband in much of his work, including correspondence for the Central Committee for National Patriotic Organisations.

Cust was devoted to her husband, despite a reputedly unhappy marriage that lasted until his death in 1917.

Cust was a direct neighbour of sculptor Jacob Epstein when they both lived at Hyde Park Gate in London"

He built the grand mansion of Belton House, which survives today ...

As he died without surviving male issue, he was succeeded in his title and in most of his estates, including Belton, by his younger brother Sir William Brownlow, 4th Baronet (1665-1701), who received Belton House on condition that John's widow Alice Sherard should retain possession of it during her lifetime.

As she outlived Sir William, it therefore passed on her death in 1721 to William's son John Brownlow, 1st Viscount Tyrconnel (1690-1754)"

According to the church guidebook when Robert married Lady Bridget, who was a favourite lady in waiting to Queen Elizabeth I, he did so without the queen’s knowledge or consent. She had him arrested and thrown into a dungeon whence he was released because he became very ill. Lady Bridget was called back to court but died of ‘Ye Sicknesse’ at the age of 24. Both are buried in the church and the flat surface between the figures on the memorial is used as a credence table for the bread and wine.

Holy Trinity's website states :- 

"It was a lightning strike in the early 1840s that gave a handful of worshipers the chance of having a parish church of their own.

Lightning destroyed Blades Mill and William Roy, the Rector of St Nicholas, Skirbeck, who had private means, seized the opportunity.

The Spilsby Road area was part of his parish.

In 1840 he had started things moving by having a room that was licensed for divine service.

By 1849 the new parish church of Holy Trinity, on the site where the mill used to stand, was consecrated by the Bishop of Lincoln"

This splendid life size effigy is of Sir John de Buslingthorpe who died c1340. He lies with his pillow supported by two angels and with a lion at his feet.

The remarkable state of preservation of this monument may in part be explained by the fact that it was discovered lying face downwards beneath the pulpit of the mediaeval church during Willson's restoration.

This demi-figure of Sir Richard Boselyngthorpe dates from c1290 making it one of the oldest brasses in England.

Note that his head rests on two cushions, the lower with ogee detailed corners, the upper placed on the diagonal.

Between his fingers can be seen a heart shape, leading to speculation that he died abroad and only his heart was returned for burial at Buslingthorpe.

This memorial bust of Alice South is in the north aisle.  Hands clasped in prayer, she wears  a ruff and has a cowled head.

The Souths once held the manor of Keelby.

The inscription below the bust reads:
Here lies Alice South whose life had weathered sixty winters when it ceased its lingering course.  Though wooed by the flower of youth and a troop of nobles, she remained for fourteen years in lonely widowhood, out of affection for her children, to whom, rejecting a second marriage, she made over ere death took her, her fortune unimpaired - all her fortune, that is, save what had been devoured by the parasite and wretched crowd of suitors who haunted her hospitable walls. Happy children to whom but for her request would have fallen sorrow and sighing in place of ease she bequeathed to them. 'Husband take and keep me in the tomb' were her dying words, then passed into the funeral urn the ashes of a thus dutiful wife. Died 3 May 1605

Memorial to the noted Lincoln architect William Adams Nicholson (1803-1853) who was a founding member of the Royal Institute of British Architects. 

"Possibly Nicholson's most important contribution was in the design of Workhouses.

His pioneering Southwell Workhouse (1824) was important forerunner of the radially planned workhouses of the New Poor Law ...

As well as working in the Gothic revival style of architecture, Nicholson could also work very effectively in classical styles.

He designed the Mansfield Town Hall in a Grecian style portico with Doric columns.

More striking is the Corn Exchange of 1847 in the Cornhill Lincoln. Here he has a projecting portico with Corinthian columns at Piano nobile level ... "

"In 1816, Hobart reached the pinnacle of his success as a clergyman with his appointment as Dean of Windsor.

This made him spiritual head of St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, a chapel royal and royal peculiar, essentially the monarch's private chapel.

He was to hold this deanery until his death in 1848, serving four monarchs: George III, George IV, William IV and Queen Victoria.

The deanery carried with it the post of Register of the Order of the Garter, which is based at the chapel".

This type of ledger, which shows the bust of the person commemorated, is variously called a sunk-relief, ‘head and shoulders’ or an ‘under the blanket’  monument.

It dates from around 1320 and is of a woman wearing a veiled headdress. At the lower edge her ‘shoes’ emerge.

Grant died in 1799 and his tablet is unusual in having part of the inscription chipped out.
 
He wished it to record that he had acquired £100,000 from farming, a feat that had "never been done before". Later generations of his family removed this wording, perhaps considering it immodest.

White's Directory of 1856 states :-

"CHRIST'S HOSPITAL, or BLUE COAT SCHOOL, was founded in the year 1602, by Richard Smith, M.D., who bequeathed the manor, and certain lands, at Potter Hanworth, for the erection and endowment of a school, for the maintenance and education of twelve poor boys.

But, the estates having increased considerably in value, since that time, and the charity being augmented by a number of munificent bequests, the governors in 1815, were enabled to increase the number of scholars to fifty, and they have since been augmented by five or ten at a time, till they now amount to 124, who are lodged, maintained, clothed, and educated till they arrive at the age or fourteen or fifteen years, when each is apprenticed, with a premium of £16.

They are admitted between the ages of seven and eight; and are selected from the poorest and most deserving natives of Lincoln, Potter Hanworth, and Welton.

They were formerly dressed like the boys of Christ's Hospital in London, but they now wear more modern clothing.

They are now taught music as well as reading, writing, and arithmetic"

Romaine wrote a diary in shorthand of which there is a copy in the parish chest.

He was a friend of the Wesleys and named after a famous 18th century evangelical preacher"

"Banks made his name on the 1766 natural history expedition to Newfoundland and Labrador.

He took part in Captain James Cook's first great voyage (1768-1771), visiting Brazil, Tahiti, and, after 6 months in New Zealand, Australia, returning to immediate fame.

He held the position of President of the Royal Society for over 41 years.

He advised King George III on the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and by sending botanists around the world to collect plants, he made Kew the world's leading botanical gardens.

He is credited for bringing 30,000 plant specimens home with him; amongst them he discovered 1,400"
