According to legend, Grimsby was founded by a Danish fisherman called Grim. In Old Norse, 'by' means village. The story of Grim and Havelok is written about in a poem thought to have been composed around 1280-1310, but Grimsby’s recorded history dates back to 866AD when thousands of Norse invaders passed through the town on their way to inland cities.
