Holme next the Sea
"HOLME-NEXT-THE-SEA is a parish and small village, betwixt Hunstanton and Brancaster Bay, 9 miles W. of Burnham-Market, containing 280 inhabitants, and 1,197 acres of land, lying in several manors, viz:- Hunstanton-with-Mustrells, Ringstead-with-Holme, and Northwall, otherwise Barnards, of which Hy. L'Estrange Styleman Le Strange, Esq., is lord; and Holkham, Berry's, and Hoods, of which the Rev. Chas. Palmer is lord, and has a neat mansion here; as also has Mr. Matthew Thurlow Nelson. The CHURCH (Virgin Mary,) has a large square tower, built by Henry Notynham, an itinerant judge, in the reign of Henry IV. It has been much larger, the nave being rebuilt on a smaller scale, in 1778. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £6 13s. 4d., and consolidated with that of Thornham. It has about 22 acres of glebe, and was augmented, in 1762, with £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty. The Rev. Chas. Sutton, D.D., has been incumbent since 1794, and the Bishop of Norwich is the patron."
