East Harling

Primary tabs

"HARLING (EAST), or Market Harling, a small Market Town on elevated ground, above the vale of the Thet rivulet, 9 miles E. by N. of Thetford, and 21 miles S. W. of Norwich. The parish contains 247 houses, 1,198 inhabitants, and 2,573 acres of land. Sir R. J. Buxton, Bart., is lord of the manor, but the Earl of Albermarle, Thos. Thornhill, Esq., and others, have estates here. . . . The town was once celebrated for the manufacture of linen yarn and cloth. The CHURCH, dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, is a handsome edifice, with a tower and spire; and at the east end is the Harling chapel, containing effigies and other memorials of that family. The Rectory, valued in the King's book at £12, is in the gift of Mrs. Wilkinson, and enjoyed by the Rev. Thos. B. Wilkinson. The Friends, Methodists, and Primitive Methodists, have each a chapel here." [Francis White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1854) - Transcription copyright © the late A.J. Carter]
