In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described North Owersby like this:

OWERSBY, a village and a parish in Caistor district, Lincoln. The village stands 2½ miles E of the river Ancholme, 3 W N W of Usselby r. station, and 4¾ N W by N of Market-Rasen; and has a post-office under Market-Rasen. The parish is cut into two sections, N and S; and is sometimes regarded as two parishes. ...

Acres of N. O., 4, 718. Real property, £4, 935. Pop. in 1851, 351; in 1861, 421. Houses, 76.

Houses, 18. The manor belongs to W. Angerstein, Esq. Much improvement was recently effected by taking down old buildings, and replacing them with superior new ones.
