Goltho is a hamlet in the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 1mi south-west from Wragby, and 0.5mi south from the A158 road.Wragby and Goltho Limewood Walk, through one of the Lincolnshire Limewoods National Nature Reserves, passes Goltho Hall, Goltho Chapel and Goltho deserted medieval village.HistoryThe settlemant has Anglo-Saxon roots. There was a Romano-British settlement at Goltho in the 1st and 2nd centuries.The origin of the name is uncertain, perhaps from an Old Scandinavian (Viking) first name or the Viking word for "ravine", or as is widely accepted locally, "where the marigolds grow", referred to in Henry Thorold's guide to the redundant St George's Church, Goltho.The remains of the early medieval village were excavated in the 1970s. A Saxon settlement on the site consisted of two houses; about 850 the site was fortified with the addition of a banked enclosure, and a hall was added. A motte-and-bailey castle was built at Goltho in around 1080.Goltho Hall was the ancestral seat of the Grantham family. Sir Thomas Grantham (1574–1630) was Sheriff of Lincoln in 1600 and MP for Lincolnshire from 1621 to 1622. He was a shareholder in the Virginia Company and is listed in the Third Virginia Charter of 1612. He was a Puritan and was imprisoned in Lincoln Castle for refusing to pay Ship Money. His son Thomas (1612–1655) was MP for Lincoln during the Long Parliament and raised a regiment of foot which fought at the Battle of Aylesbury in 1642. The hall was eventually sold to the Mainwairing family and demolished in 1812. The present hall was built nearby in 1875.
