"CARLTON-RODE, a large scattered village, 2 miles E.N.E. of New Buckenham, has in its parish 938 souls, and 2573 acres of land, the greater part of which belongs to Sir Robert J. Buxton, Bart., (now a minor,) but part of the parish is in Forncett and Tibbenham manors. In the winter of 1844, a very interesting collection of British instruments or tools was discovered here in digging a ditch across a pasture field, on the farm occupied by the Rev. T. P. Slapp, of Old Buckenham, in whose possession they have been placed. . . . The Church (All Saints,) was repaired in 1717, and has a good organ, lately given by Mrs. Bevan. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £16, and now having a yearly rent of £922. 12s. 6d.. awarded in 1839 in lieu of tithes. Sir R.J. Buxton, Bart., is patron, and the Rev. F.S. Bevan incumbent. Here is a Baptist chapel." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Ann Duncan]
