Norfolk: Framingham Pigot


William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1845

FRAMINGHAM-PIGOT, a small scattered village, 4½ miles S.E. by S. of Norwich, has in its parish 289 souls, and 565A. of land, owned by many freeholders; but the Earl of Rosebery is lord of the manor, which was given by Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, to the Pigot, or Picot family.

The CHURCH (St. Andrew,) is a small, humble fabric, with a tower. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £3. 6s. 8d. The Bishop of Norwich is patron, and the Rev. Thos. Johnson Ormerod, M.A., is the incumbent, and is now building a neat Rectory House. The tithes were commuted in 1842 for £220 per annum.

The Fuel Allotment, awarded at the enclosure in 1800, is 7A. 3R. 2P., let for £12.

Here is a Baptist Chapel, built about 1808.
