BRIGG (or Glanford Brigg) is a market and union town and head of a petty sessional division and county court district and a parish on the river Ancholme. and on the road from Lincoln to Barton and Grimsby, 163½ miles from London. 16 south-west from Hull, 23 north from the city of Lincoln, 16½ north-east from Gainsborough. 19 west from Grimsby, in North Lindsey division of the county, parts of Lindsey, and extends into two wapentakes, viz. Yarborough and Manlake, and is in the rural deanery of Yarborough No. 1, archdeaconry of Stow and diocese of Lincoln. Brigg was formerly only a small fishing hamlet, but is now a thriving town with an extensive trade, well paved and lighted with gas, and supplied with excellent water obtained from St. Helen's well, about a mile from the town: the water works were established by the late C. Cary-Elwes Esq. The Great Central Railway Company has a station here, with extensive warehouses. Under the provisions of the "Local Government Act, 1894" (56 and 57 Vict. c. 73), Brigg is now governed by an Urban District Council, having from 1864 been under the control of a Local Board; it was constituted an ecclesiastical parish Aug. 13, 1872, from the civil parishes of Bigby, Broughton, Scawby and Wrawby.

Too many words, skip to the end.

The church of St. John the Evangelist, situated in the centre of the town, and rebuilt in 1842-3 on the site of the earlier church, at an expense of about £2,700, is a building of stone in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave, north and south porches and an eastern tower, with pinnacles, containing 8 bells: the stained west window was erected in 1894 as a memorial to the late Rev. Philip Henry Brierly M.A. vicar 1879-93: the sedilia were presented in 1893 by Albert Cressey Esq.; part of the outside stone work was restored in 1893 at a cost of £200, and the south porch restored in 1896: there are 450 sittings. The register of baptisms and marriages dates from 1843; burials, 1857; the old registers are kept at the mother parish church of Wrawby. The living is a vicarage, known as Glandford Bridge, net yearly value £230, with residence, in the gift of the Bishop of Lincoln, and held since 1893 by the Rev. Arthur Needham Claye M.A. of Pembroke College, Oxford, rural dean of Yarborough No. 1, surrogate, and chaplain of the Brigg Union Workhouse. Attached to the church is a lectureship, value £30 yearly, derived from 24 acres of land, and held by the vicar.

Bigby Street

Bigby Street

The Catholic church, in Bigby street, is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and has been endowed by V.D.H. Cary-Elwes Esq.; it affords 120 sittings, and near it is a priest's residence; there is a Congregational chapel in Wrawby Street, founded in 1718, with 400 sittings; a Wesleyan chapel, seating 800 persons; a Primitive Methodist chapel, with 300 sittings, both in Bridge Street; the Free Methodist chapel, in Bigby Street, has 300 sittings. The Cemetery, on the road to Wrawby, a short distance from the town, was opened on the 1st of August, 1857, at a cost of £2,500; it is 3 acres in extent with two mortuary chapels, and is under the control of a joint committee, consisting of 5 members appointed by the Brigg Urban District Council and 4 by the Wrawby Parish Council. The weekly market is very well attended and held on Thursday; and a fat stock market held fortnightly on a Tuesday by Mr, Grassby, auctioneer; and a fair is held on the 5th of August for cattle and general commodities, and a hiring for servants on the Friday before Old May-day. The Police Station, a building of stone, adjoins the union house. Petty Sessions are held here every alternate Tuesday, and a County Court is also held here. The Corn Exchange was erected in 1850 by a joint-stock company. The Exchange Club, which occupies rooms at the Corn Exchange, is maintained by the annual subscriptions of the members. There is also a news and reading room, with a library, well supplied with newspapers and periodicals, and one newspaper, "The North Lindsey and Lincolnshire Star," is published here. The Freemasons hold their meetings at the Masonic Rooms on the first Monday in each month at 7 p.m. The Buffaloes hold their meetings at the Woolpack Hotel on Mondays at 8 p.m. There are two banks.

In 1886, during some excavations by the Brigg Gas Works, a very ancient ship was discovered at a depth of about 3ft. 6in. from the surface, and was found to have been hewn out from the trunk of a single and enormous oak tree, the stern being worked out of the butt and the prow out of the upper part; the total length is 48ft. 8in. width 4ft. 3in. and depth 2ft. 3in. and the sides are curved; ridges of timber have been left at intervals, crossing the bottom athwart ship, and corresponding with the floor timbers of a modern craft; the bows are simply rounded, the appearance being as if the ship had heen intended as a ram; V.D.H. Cary-Elwes Esq., has since had a building erected in Bigby Street, where this ancient vessel has now been deposited and may be inspected, The Manor House is the property of Valentine Dudley Henry Cary-Elwes Esq. F.S.A., F.G.H.S., D.L., J.P. one of the principal landowners and Lord of the manor; the house is now occupied by Gervase Henry Cary-Elwes Esq. D.L., J.P. The population in 1901 was 3,137, including 104 officers and inmates in workhouse; rateable value, £10,963; area, 450 acres of land and 13 of water. By Local Government Board Order 26,921, the Urban District was, in March, 1892, extended, and by the same Order the parts of Bigby, Broughton, Scawby and Wrawby, in the Urban District, were amalgamated with the parish.

Not a Thursday

TL;DR - Conclusion.

Mr. Kelly or his staff can't decide how to spell Howsham, or it may have been the typesetter who spelled it Housham.
Also, Mr. Kelly or one of his associates seemed to think that the Church on Bigby Street was built on the site of a previous Church, I'm not so sure that that is correct, maybe someone who knows the truth could comment below.
Edward VII was the king and Arthur Balfour was the Prime Minister for most of the year but was replaced by Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman just before Christmas. Albert Einstein published his theory of special relativity, Teddy Roosevelt became the youngest president of the United States, and the AA was founded to help motorists avoid police speed traps. Also in 1905, the political party, Sinn Féin was founded in order to campaign for the independence of Ireland and Emmeline Pankhurst led the first public protest by suffragettes at Westminster.
