In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Brigg like this:
Brigg, market town with ry. sta., mostly in Scawby and Wrawby pars., in co. and 24 miles N. of Lincoln, pop. 3087; P.O., T.O., 2 Banks. Market-day, Thursday. See GLANFORD BRIGG.
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 Brigg has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of North Lincolnshire. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Brigg and units named after it.
