Primary tabs

"BURGH-APTON, or BERGH-APTON, is a pleasant village, in the detached part of Clavering Hundred, 3½ miles W. by N. of Loddon, and 7½ miles S.S.E. of Norwich, on a branch of the river Yare. It has been much improved during the last forty years. Its parish increased its population from 304 souls, in 1801, to 564, in 1841, and contains 1924A. of land, belonging to a number of owners, some of whom reside here, in neat houses. The Earl of Abergavenny is lord of the manor, (fines certain,) and patron of the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £13. 6s. 8d., and in 1831 at £575, with a mediety of Holverstone (£5 a year,) annexed to it, in the incumbency of the Hon. and Rev. J.T. Pelham. . . . The Church (St. Peter and St. Paul,) has a lofty tower, and was repaired, new roofed, and enlarged in 1838. Here was anciently another church (St. Martin,) but it was dilapidated in the 15th century, and its remains were cleared away in 1834. Here is a commodious National School, built in 1839." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]

The name may also be found as Berghapton, Burgh Apton and Burghapton.
