      Humberston 1856 - Ex Whites Directory 1856
      HUMBERSTONE or Humberston, is a near and well-built village, finely interspersed with trees, and pleasantly situated nearly two miles from the river Humber and Waltham Station; and 4 miles SSE of Grimsby.
      It's parish contains 259 souls, and about 2930 acres of land, mostly the property of Lord Carrington, who is lord of the manor, and patron of the vicarage, which is valued in KB at 5 18s 4d and now at 63, in the incumbency of the Rev Charles Wildbore, who is also headmaster of the free school.
      The church (St Peter) is a near structure, which was rebuilt about 1710, and contains several handsome monuments, one of which is in memory of Matthew Humberstone, Esq, who died in 1709, and bequeathed 1000 to rebuild the church; 300 for the erection of his monument ; 500 for the erection of a free grammar school and almshouses; 600 for the endowment of the latter, and an annuity of 40 for the augmentation of the vicar's income, provided he officiates as school master; and he further directed that during the time any owner of his estates should be a minor, all the rents above 200 a year should be applied to these and other charitable and private used named in his will.
      The body of the church was rebuilt of brick soon after his disease.
      The vicar's annuity is charged on the manor and impropriate rectory of Humberstone, now belonging to Lord Carrington, but in consequence of the Draper's and other Companies named in the will refusing to become trustees; and to various suits in Chancery, instituted by the relatives of the testator and others, the school and almshouses were not built till after the year 1821. when Lord Carrington, Lord Yarborough, C A Pelham, W E Tomline, John Smith, Thomas Thompson Esquires were appointed trustees, and vested with power to purchase and acre of land, and to erect thereon a School and Almshouses, with a house for the vicar and the schoolmaster, at he cost of 2997.
      It was at the same time ordered by the Court of Chancery that the school should be free to all the male children of Humberstone, Laceby, Clee, Cleethorpes, Weelsby, Tetney, Scartho and Holton. Thus more that a century elapsed between the date of the bequest and the establishment of the charity; but this delay caused such an accumulation of the trust property that it consisted of 21,855 13s 5p South Sea Annuities, and about 1000 in Exchequer Bills &c, after laying out more than 6000 in law expenses, and the erection of the above-named buildings, and the purchase of the ground on which they stand.
      The yearly income is upwards of 700 and the yearly stipends now paid are 200 to the headmaster, 100 to the second master, 80 to the third master, 20 to the secretary, and 16 to each of the six almspeople.
      The trustees also allow 40 a year for coals, cleaning the school &c, and about 20 for books and stationery.
      The head master is allowed to take boarders, and has the free use of a commodious dwelling, and about eight acres of land.
      The number of free scholars is limited to 100, and they are taught reading, writing, arithmetic, and grammar, and some of them Latin and Greek. Half of them may be sent by Humberstone, but that parish seldom sends more than 20, and the other are from the six other parishes just named.
      The almshouses are for six poor men and women of the parish of Humberstone.
      After a long and expensive litigation between Lord Carrington and the trustees, each has to pay their own costs in 1850, when a new scheme was sanctioned by the Lord Chancellor for the future management of the school and the almshouses, and 17 new trustees were appointed, with the power to erect a house for the second master, and to establish a free school for girls.
      An ancient yearly rent charge of 20s called Barbara Dole is charged on the lordship of Humberstone, for the poor of Cleethorpes, Stallingborough and Humberstone.
      The ancestor of the founder of the school and almshouses is said to have been a foundling from Homerton, near London, who was educated at Christ's Hospital. And having acquired great riches, purchased this estate, and altered his name to that of the village.
      An abbey of Benedictine monks was founded her in the reign of Henry II, by William Fitz Ralph, or Robert fil Dragonis. At the dissolution is was valued at 42 11s 3d, and was granted to John Cheeke Esq, but no traces of it are now extant.
