"BAWBURGH is a village and parish, on both sides of the river Yare, 5 miles W. of Norwich, containing 404 souls, and 1362A. of land, in Lord Stafford's manor of Costessey; but Sir Woodbine Parish, Kt., J.S. Muskett, Esq., and some others, have estates here. The CHURCH (St. Mary and St. Walstan) was partly rebuilt in 1309, and thoroughly repaired in 1638. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £13. 7s. 6d., and is in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Norwich, and incumbency of the Rev. Geo. Carter. The former are appropriators of the rectorial tithes, which are leased to Mr. Muskett, and were commuted in 1840 for £251, and the vicarial tithes for £109 per annum. On Mr. Cross's farm, is St. Walstan's Well, supposed to possess extraordinary healing virtues."
