"HOWE, a small parish in the detached member of Clavering Hundred, 7 miles S. by E. of Norwich, has only 92 souls, and 766 acres of land. The Rev. 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]
