Full Description

62538 The settlement of Anwick is first documented in the Domesday Book. Geoffrey Alselin owned a berewic there which belonged to a manor in Ruskington. Drew de Beurere also owned land there. The minimum population at that time was 29. {1} The name Anwick is derived from the Old English personal name 'Amma', and 'wic'. Sporadic forms containing -n- occur early, such as 'Anewic' c.1221, but such spellings do not become common until the sixteenth century. {2} There were 32 households in Anwick in 1563. {3} By 1801 there were 209 people living in Anwick, and in 1901 there were 262, peaking at 348 in 1881. {4}
