In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Maidenwell like this:
MAIDENWELL, a hamlet in Farforth parish, Lincoln; 5 ½ miles S of Louth. Pop., 59. Maidenwell House, a neat and picturesque mansion, is the seat of G. H. Browne, Esq. The hamlet was formerly a parish; and it still ranks as a vicarage, annexed to the rectory of Buckland, in the diocese of Lincoln.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Maidenwell has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of East Lindsey. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Maidenwell and units named after it.
