Salhouse

Primary tabs

"SALHOUSE, or Sallowes, is a large but straggling village and parish, 6 miles N.E. of Norwich, comprising 642 inhabitants, and 2060 acres of land, lying within Sigismund Trafford, Esq.'s manor of Wroxham with Salhouse, but the soil belongs to a number of freeholders and copyholders, the latter of whom are subject to arbitrary fines. The Hall, with a large estate around it, came to the Ward family in 1712, by the marriage of Robt. Ward, Esq., with the daughter of William Holt, Esq., of which family was Lord Chief Justice Holt. The Hall is now the seat and property of Richard Ward, Esq. . . . The Church (All Saints,) is an ancient structure, which has of late years been much embellished by Mr. Ward. . . . The living is a discharged vicarage, consolidated with that of Wroxham, which see. The glebe is 12A., and the vicarial tithes were commuted in 1843 for £187. 10s. per annum.

There may be more people living in detached parts of the parish (if there were any) and, if so, the number may or may not be included in the figures above. It is quite difficult to be sure from the population tables.
