"NEWTON-FLOTMAN, 7 miles S. by W. of Norwich, has in its parish 371 souls, and 1172 acres of land, mostly the property of R.K. Long, Esq., the lord of the manor, and patron of the CHURCH, (Virgin Mary,) which was rebuilt in 1385, and has a fine brass, on which are graved the effigies of Richard, Ralph, and Edward Blundeville, of the 15th and 16th centuries. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £10, is consolidated with that of Swainsthorpe, in the incumbency of the Rev. Henry Long, who has a pleasant Rectory House, built a few years ago, on a commanding eminence."
