MARSH-CHAPEL (St. Mary), a parish, in the union of Louth, wapentake of Bradley-Haverstoe, parts of Lindsey, county of Lincoln, 10 miles ( N. N. E.) from Louth; containing 503 inhabitants. It comprises 3067 acres, of which 127 are common land or marsh: the canal which connects the town of Louth with the river Humber, forms one of the boundaries of the parish. The surface is flat, and the scenery of uninteresting character. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £76; patrons and impropriators, the Floyer family. The church is a handsome edifice, consisting of a nave, aisles, chancel, and chantry chapel, with a tower, and has been much improved of late by the incumbent and the family of Floyer.
