From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lowesby is a small parish and township situated in the district of Harborough in Leicestershire county. It is 8 miles east of the county capital, Leicester, and 90 miles north of London.
The name Lowesby stems from Old Norse and is thought to mean Lausi’s farm or settlement, which refers to the owner and subsequent land use. The manor of Lowesby is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as containing two plough teams consisting of five men each. The manor was held from Countess Judith, a niece of William the Conqueror, by a Norman named Hugh Burdet (or Bourdet/Bordet), originally from Cuilly in Normandy, who made Loseby his seat for many generations.
