Norfolk: Roxham

ROXHAM parish, 4 miles S. by E. of Downham, has only 45 souls, and about 700 acres of land, belonging to E.R. Pratt, Esq., and in two farms, occupied by Robert Gilling and Henry Norbourn.

The Church went to decay several centuries ago, when its curacy was consolidated with Ryston. Here are still some traces of a moat, which anciently encompassed a house, called Walpole House.
