Conging Street

Dr Caitlin Green, a friend of Geograph, tells me:
I.M. Bower's 1940 PhD on Lincs place names offers the following explanation, for what its worth: "Conging Street is locally taken as being a corruption of French 'conge' 'permission', in that strangers wishing to enter the town were stopped and made to pay the toll levied by the lord of the manor."
