John Holmes owns the greater part of the soil, and is lord of the manor, anciently held by the noble family of Denny. The Church (St. Mary,) is a single pile, with a round tower. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £8. 13s. 4d., and in 1831, at £400, with that of Little Poringland annexed to it, is in the patronage of the Rev. Charles Wheler, and incumbency of the Rev. Wm. Tattersall, B.A." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
