Primary tabs

"EARSHAM, which gives name to this hundred, is a considerable village, in the vale of the Waveney, 1 mile W. of Bungay, and has in its parish 731 souls, and 3052A. of land, but only 2718 acres are assessable. The Duke of Norfolk is lord of the manor of Earsham (fines arbitrary,) and owner of the Park farm (600A.) Sir Wm. Windham Dalling, Bart., is lord of the manor of Dobels-in-Earsham, and owns a large estate here; and Earsham House, a large mansion, in a pleasant park, built in 1700, by John Buxton, Esq., of whom it was purchased by Colonel Windham. The Church (All Saints,) has a square tower, containing three bells, and crowned by a short spire. The south windows were decorated with stained glass by the late Joseph Windham, Esq., an eminent antiquary, who died in 1810. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £15, is in the gift of Sir W.W. Dalling, and incumbency of the Rev. W.G. Cautley, M.A." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
