Historic Sites
Waltham is a village and civil parish in North East Lincolnshire, England. It is geographically 4mi south-west from Grimsby and is close to the villages of Scartho, Brigsley, Barnoldby-le-Beck, and Bradley. Less than 2mi to the north-east is the village of New Waltham. According to the 2001 Census, Waltham had a population of 6,420.HistoryThere was a substantial Saxon settlement on the site of the first village although artifacts show earlier Roman occupation. The Waltham name is of Saxon origin, Walt referring to woodland or an area of high forest and Ham to either an estate or a village. It is possible that Saxons changed the name from the Old English 'Wealdhant' which had the same meaning; the first part Ald, prefixed by We, meant "settlement", and Hant a "wooded estate".Elizabeth Shaw, a centenarian who lived to age 117, was born 22 April 1683 at Waltham. A life portrait of her by R. Sheardown was published in 1800.GovernmentWaltham Ward is part of North East Lincolnshire Council, and covers the villages of Waltham, Brigsley and Ashby-cum-Fenby. It is one of the safest Conservative wards on the council.Current elected councillors: Cllr Iain B Colquhoun (Conservative Party) Cllr Philip Jackson (Conservative Party)
