Norfolk: Mautby


William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1883

MAUTBY, a parish 5½ miles N.W. of Yarmouth, had only 121 inhabitants in 1881, 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 9 acres. The parish is in Flegg union, East Flegg hundred, East and West Flegg petty sessional division, Yarmouth county court district and bankruptcy district, Ormesby polling district of North Norfolk, Flegg rural deanery, and Norwich archdeaconry.

It has a rateable value of about £3000, and Robert Fellowes, Esq., is patron of the rectory, lord of the manor, and owner of nearly the whole parish, which was anciently held by the Mautebys, of whom there are some ancient monuments in the church.

The CHURCH (St. Peter and St. Paul) is a small thatched fabric, consisting of a nave and chancel, with a tower, round at the base and octagonal above, containing one bell. In the chancel are sedilia and a piscina, and some of the windows contain fragments of stained glass. The register dates from 1660.

The rectory, valued in the King's Books at £13 6s. 8d., has 45A. 2R. of glebe, and is now in the incumbency of the Rev. Charles Fellowes of Shottesham, for whom the Rev. - Budd officiates.
