Bolingbroke, now called Old Bolingbroke, is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The population at the 2001 census was 298 in 128 households.Bolingbroke is 3mi west of Spilsby. The village of New Bolingbroke is to the south-west. The Prime Meridian passes through the parish to the west of Old Bolingbroke.HistoryBolingbroke appears in the Domesday survey as "Bolingborg", one of 38 places associated with Stori of Bolingbroke at the time of the Norman conquest. William de Roumare, Earl of Lincoln (born circa 1096), built Old Bolingbroke Castle in the 12th century as a motte and bailey castle with wet ditch. In the early 13th century a new castle was constructed at the present site by Ranulph de Blondeville, 4th Earl of Chester. Later John of Gaunt, the son of Edward III, acquired the castle. In 1367 it was the birthplace of John's son, Henry, known as Henry Bolingbroke, who became King Henry IV of England. The castle was under siege in 1643 during the Civil War when the Royalists used it to garrison troops prior to the Battle of Winceby (11 October 1643). The last remaining structure fell down in 1815. The site became a grassy hillock, which archeologists excavated in the 1970s.
