BILLOCKBY, 8½ miles N.W. of Yarmouth, is a small parish, with only 71 inhabitants, and about 380 acres of land, belonging to Robt. Joy, Esq., and the Misses Browne, the former of whom is lord of the manor.

The Church (All Saints) is in ruins, except the chancel, and is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £2. 8s. 9d., and in 1831, at £100. It was augmented in 1780, and 1792, with £400 of Queen Anne's Bounty. The Rev. Wm. Lucas, M.A., is patron and incumbent. The tithes have been commuted for £147. 10s. per annum.

The Poor's Allotment, 4A. 1R. 30P., was awarded at the enclosure, in 1804.
