William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1845HOLVERSTONE, 5 miles S.E. by E. of Norwich, has in its parish only 37 souls, and 331 acres of land, mostly belonging to the Executors of the late John Marcon, Esq., of Swaffham.
The Church (St. Mary,) was dilapidated some centuries ago, and no traces of it are now extant. The rectory is in two medieties, united to Rockland St. Mary and Burgh-Apton. A small modus is paid in lieu of tithes.
The farmers are Jesse Andrews and George Barnham. The latter occupies the old hall.
