"KETTLESTONE, 3½ miles E.N.E. of Fakenham, has in its parish 219 souls, and about 1,100 acres, of which only 629 acres are assessable. Sir Chas. Chadd is lord of the manor; but part of the soil belongs to Sir L. Jones, the Earl of Leicester, and Mrs. Dew. The CHURCH (All Saints,) has an octagonal tower, and had a guild of St. Erasmus. The living, a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £10, is in the gift of the Crown, and incumbency of the Rev. James Cory, B.A. The glebe is 40A., and the tithes were commuted, in 1839, for £300 per annum. A farm of 100A., belonging to Mrs. Dew, is charged with the schooling of two poor children, by the will of John Schuldham, dated 1713.
