"BURGH, or Burgh-next-Aylsham, is a village and parish, on the east side of the Bure, 2 miles S.E. of Aylsham, and contains 314 souls, and 789 acres of land, mostly belonging to J.H. Holley, Esq., the lord of the manor, who resides at Burgh Hall, a neat mansion, with a fine lawn, and is patron of the Church, (St. Mary,) which is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £7. 17. 1d., and now enjoyed by the Rev. Edward Holley, B.A. The glebe is 12A., and the tithes have been commuted for £255 per annum. From its name, and many coins, urns, &c., found here, Burgh is supposed to have been a Roman station. Mrs. Holley supports a National School." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Richard Johns]
