Hibaldstow is a village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 2,433. It is situated on the B1206 road, 4mi south from Brigg and the M180. The site of the deserted medieval village of Gainsthorpe is nearby.HistoryHibaldstow was founded as a Roman legionary 'roadside fort' on Ermine Street, the road from Lincoln to the Humber; later it became a posting station. The earliest evidence for occupation suggests a date in the late first century. Occupation continued into the late fourth century. There is no Iron Age settlement evidence from the Roman site itself.The village name derives from Saint Hygbald – a Northumbrian missionary who came to the area in the latter part of the 7th century. Described as a 'shadowy figure' the missionary became Abbot of Bardney and later a saint. Three churches around the village – then known as Ceceseg – became dedicated to him when he was made a saint. The name 'Hibaldstow' comes from Old English Hygebald+stow, for "Place where St. Hygebald is buried". From 1066–87 the village was referred to as "Hibaldestowa". It appeared in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Hiboldestou". Variations in the spelling are many, even within a single document. Some writers have suggested that the name was originally Hubba, a Danish commander or leader.
