"BYLAUGH, or Belaugh, is a picturesque parish, on the north bank of the Wensum, 5 miles N.E. of East Dereham, containing only 85 souls and 1544A. 2R. 19P. of land, mostly in two farms, belonging to Edward Lombe, Esq., lord of the manor, impropriator, and patron of the Church (Virgin Mary,) which was thoroughly repaired in 1810, when the chancel was rebuilt and transepts added by the late Sir John Lombe. The living is a perpetual curacy, valued in 1831 at £82, and augmented in 1771-'2, with £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty, and £200 given by the Dowager Countess Gower. With this £400, 53A. of land was purchased. The Rev. Henry Evans is the incumbent, for whom the Rev. L.A. Norgate, of Foxley, officiates. The two farms are occupied by Stephen Warnes and Joseph Taylor. On the north side of the parish is a large plantation, &c., forming part of the Earl of Leicester's estate of Beck Hall."
