Norfolk: Beeston St Andrew


William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1845

BEESTON ST. ANDREW, 3½ miles N.E. by N. of Norwich, has only 46 souls, and 620 acres of land, mostly the property of N. Micklethwait, Esq., and Mr. O. Barnes. The former owns the Hall, which has a well-wooded lawn, but is unoccupied.

There has been no church here during the last two centuries, though the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £3. 6s. 8d., and in 1831 at £220, is still continued, as a sinecure, in the gift of F.R. Reynolds, Esq., and incumbency of the Rev. John Collett Reynolds.
