"HAINFORD, or Haynford, 6½ miles N. of Norwich, is a large straggling village, occupied partly by weavers, and having in its parish 570 souls, and 1755 acres of land. The Hall is the seat of the Rev. A.W. Keppel, A.B.; and the Rev. H.N. Astley has an estate here, but the greater part of the soil belongs to Robert Marsham, Esq., the patron of the Church, (All Saints,) which was built in 1840, at the cost of about £1200, in lieu of the old one, of which the tower and vestry are still standing. The old churchyard is still used, and the new Church is at the distance of nearly half a mile. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6. 2s. 1d., is enjoyed by the Rev. W.A.W. Keppel. The glebe is 34A., and the tithes have been commuted for £425 per annum. Here is a National School, attended by about 80 children."
