Lincolnshire Day

Lincolnshire Day

Lincolnshire, a small English community, is not a place dedicated to Abraham Lincoln. Lincolnshire is an English community. It is also a place that was the center of a revolt against the Tudor dynasty. Lincolnshire Day is an English commemoration of the event that was a focal point of religious conflict. You can learn more about Lincolnshire Day’s history and how to celebrate it with friends.

Lincolnshire is commemorating the anniversary of The Lincolnshire Rising. This was a rebellion of Roman Catholics against Church of England’s newly established Church of England in the 1530’s. Both Catholics and Protestants wanted religious autonomy. Many of the monasteries were disbanded and many of their properties began to be transferred to the Crown. Many Roman Catholics living in England weren’t happy when the Church of England was formed. Many protests against the suppression Catholic religious houses began in Lincolnshire churches and spread to other nearby towns. King Henry VIII sent reinforcements to stop the protests, and the leaders were killed.

Lincolnshire Day was made a holiday by Lincolnshire Life magazine readers in 2006 and BBC radio listeners. This date was established to educate the locals, as well as those who moved to the country about the event and to honor the lives of those who died. It was also a way to celebrate Lincolnshire’s culture. Sir Isaac, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Matthew Flinders were just a few of the many notable people who came out of the county. The county celebrates by wearing yellow and supporting local businesses.
