"MAUTBY, a parish 5½ miles N.W. of Yarmouth, has only 66 inhabitants, six scattered farm houses, and 1626 acres of land, of which 900 are arable, 200 meadow, and 450 marsh, including several modern plantations, and a decoy of nine acres. Robert Fellowes, Esq., is patron of the rectory, lord of the manor, and owner of the whole parish, which was anciently held by the Mautebys, of whom there are some ancient monuments in the Church, which is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, and is a thatched fabric, with a tower half circular and half octagonal. The rectory, valued in the King's books at £13. 6s. 8d., has 45A. 2R. of glebe, and is enjoyed by the Rev. Charles Fellowes of Shottisham."
