ENDERBY, MAVIS (St. Michael), a parish, in the union of Spilsby, E. division of the soke of Bolingbroke, parts of Lindsey, county of Lincoln, 1¾ mile (W. by N.) from Spilsby; containing 211 inhabitants. It comprises 1338a. 2r. 38p., of inclosed land, belonging to various proprietors; the village is small and scattered, on a declivity of the Wolds. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £12. 11. 3., and in the gift of the Rev. William Morley, with a net income of £350: the tithes were commuted for land and a corn-rent under an inclosure act of the 38th of George III., when, also, 4½ acres were allotted to the poor, which are now let in small gardens. The church is a neat edifice, with a tower containing three bells; in the porch is a mutilated basin for holy water, standing on a shaft of clustered columns.
