"LANGHAM, 5 miles W.N.W. of Holt, has in its parish 89 houses, 416 souls, and 1,670 acres of land, including a decoy and 100a. of wood. It was formerly in two parishes, called Langham Magna, and Parva ; but the Church of the latter has long been dilapidated, and its rectory consolidated with Cockthorpe and Blakeney. The Church of Langham Magna is dedicated to St. Andrew and St. Mary, and is a discharged vicarage, valued in the King's book at £4 10s. and now at £170. The Rev. Jno. M. Randall is the incumbent, and the Bishop of Norwich is patron and impropriator. At the enclosure in 1817, land was allotted in lieu of tithes, viz. : 200a. to the Bishop, (now the property of the Rev. S. F. Rippingall,) 100a. to the vicar, and 49a. to the rector of Little Langham, the latter of whom performs no duty here. A new vicarage house was built some years ago. The Rev. S. F. Rippingall is lord of the manor, and has recently purchased the estate of the late Capt. Marryat, whose residence, the Manor Cottage, is occupied by C. Rippingall, Esq."
