"CARLETON FOREHOE is a small scattered village and parish, 3 miles N. by W. of Wymondham, containing 151 souls and 688A. of land, mostly belonging to Lord Wodehouse, the patron of the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £5. 17s. 1d., and in 1831, at £120, arising from 131A. of land, mostly allotted in lieu of tithes in 1766, and partly purchased with £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty and £200 given by the Rev. Jas. Champion, in 1724. The Rev. Algernon Wodehouse is the incumbent. The CHURCH (St. Mary,) is a small ancient fabric, with a modern tower, and has recently been repewed and repaired. The organ was given by Mrs. Wodehouse." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
