"BEETLEY, a village and parish, 3 miles N. by W. of East Dereham, has 395 souls, and about 1800 acres. Edward Lombe, Esq., is lord of the manor, but a great part of the soil belongs to Lord Sondes, the Rev. Robt. Hankinson, and several smaller owners. The decayed parish of Bittering Magna was divided many years ago between Beetley and Gressenhall. The Church (St. Mary Magdalen) is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £9. 7s. 11d., and now having a yearly rent of about £500, awarded in 1844, in lieu of tithes. John Collison, Esq, is patron, and the Rev. Henry Collison, incumbent." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
