"KIRBY-CANE is a parish of scattered houses, mostly occupying a high situation above the broad vale of the Wensum, about 4 miles S. of Loddon. It contains 458 souls, and 1467 acres of land, mostly in the manor of Stockton-with-the-Soke. The Rt. Hon. and Rev. Henry Lord Berners owns a great part of the soil, and resides at the Hall, a neat white mansion, with a small park. He is also patron and incumbent of the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £10, and in 1831, at £390 per annum. The glebe is 41A., and the tithes have been commuted for £425 per annum. The Church (All Saints,) is an ancient fabric, with a round tower." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
