"STRATTON ST. MARY, or LONG STRATTON, is a small Market Town, on the Roman street or way which led to Caistor; being 10 miles S. by W. of Norwich, 9 miles N. by E. of Scole Inn, and 100 miles N.E. of London. Its parish contains 690 inhabitants, and 1517A. of land, including the hamlet of Wood-green, 1 mile E.N.E. of the town, which forms a long street of good houses. . . . The CHURCH (St. Mary,) is a large handsome fabric, with an ancient round tower, containing five bells, and surmounted by a short spire. The tower is much older than the church, the latter being rebuilt about 1330, by Sir Roger de Burgh, and his family, to whom here are many monumental memorials; but all their brasses, except two, are gone. . . . The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £10, is in the gift of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and incumbency of of the Rev. Fredk. Wm. Hill Jerrard."
