Henry Birkbeck, Esq., banker, occupies the Old Hall. The other residents are Miles Blomfield, miller; and Fras. Spalding, maltster and land agent. Of the Church (All Saints,) nothing remains but part of the round tower." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
