The first mention of church organization in Lincolnshire occurs in connexion with King Wulphere, who gave to his new bishop the land of fifty families at a place called 'Ad Baruae' or 'at the wood' generally identified with Barrow on Humber; the object of the grant being to found a monastery and thus provide a mission centre on an outlying border of the vast diocese. Traces of this foundation still remained in Bede's time, but the house was swept away during the Danish ravages of the ninth century and never rebuilt.
