Primary tabs

"CROXTON, 2 miles N. of Thetford, is a village on the acclivity of a steep hill, crowned with trees, which may be seen at the distance of many miles in this open and champaign country. Its parish contains 330 inhabitants, and about 4592A. of light sandy land, a great part of which is sheep walk and rabbit warren. Lord Ashburton owns a great part of the soil, and is lord of the manor of Sibton; but a portion of the parish is in Broomhill manor, belonging to Christ's College, Cambridge, together with the advowson of the vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £6. 13s. 4d., and in 1831 at £100. It was augmented in 1809 and '19, with £400 of Queen Anne's Bounty, and is now enjoyed by the Rev. H.S.M. Hubert, M.A., for whom a new Vicarage House was erected in 1843, at the cost of £700."
