Burgh St Peter

Primary tabs

"BURGH ST. PETER, or Wheatacre Burgh, is the most south-eastern parish of Norfolk, lying in the vale of the Waveney, 6 miles E. by N. of Beccles, and 12 miles S. by W. of Yarmouth. It contains many scattered houses, 312 inhabitants, and 1979A. of land, belonging to several proprietors, among whom Sir Edw. Kerrison is the largest, and also lord of the manor. The vale of the Waveney, as far as this and the adjacent parishes, was anciently a large estuary, (see p. 236 [which is part of the History of Yarmouth],) and marine stores, coins, &c., have been often found here. The CHURCH is a long thatched edifice, with a singular brick tower. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £7. 6s. 8d., and in 1831 at £330, is in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev. William Boycatt. . . Here is a National School, built about two years ago." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
