HARGHAM parish, 3 miles S.S.W. of Attleborough, has only 88 inhabitants, and 1080 acres of land, all the property of Sir Thomas Branthwayt Beevor, Bart., who succeeded his father, the 2nd baronet, in 1820. He usually resides at Yarmouth, and lets the Hall, an ancient mansion with pleasant grounds, to Zachariah Simpson, Esq., of Diss, who occupies it as a shooting box.

The Church (All Saints) has long been dilapidated, and only a small part of it is now used for divine service. Its detached and ivy-clad tower has a picturesque appearance. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £4. 4s. 2d. is consolidated with Wilby.

The chief residents are -

         Gayford  Ann       farmer
         Spencer  Sanders   farmer
         Stacey   John      toll collector
