"FRITTON, a pleasant village, scattered round a green of 66 acres, 11 miles S. of Norwich, has in its parish 301 souls, and about 850 acres of land, in Wm. Fdk. Irby, Esq.'s manor of Boyland-cum-Fritton, but part of the soil belongs to other proprietors. The Church (St. Catherine,) has a tower and three bells. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £9, and now having about £290 a year, in lieu of tithes. The Rev. Thos. Howes, of Morningthorpe, is patron and incumbent. The glebe is 6A., and the living was augmented, in 1781, with £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty, and £200 given by the late Rev. Thos. Howes."
