History

The archdeaconry has existed since the 11th century, when archdeacons were first appointed across England, and has remained in the Diocese of Lincoln since. Since ancient times, the territory of the archdeaconry covered all of Lincolnshire (barring the West Riding of Lindsey, the Stow archdeaconry); that territory has remained broadly similar throughout her thousand-year history.
