"SALL, or Saul, a small village and parish, 1½ mile N. of Reepham, has 267 inhabitants, and 1758 acres of land. Sir Richard Paul Jodrell, Bart., (1783,) owns most of the soil, and resides at Sall House, a large brick mansion, in an extensive and well-wooded park; but W.E.L. Bulwer, Esq., is lord of the manor of Sall-Rick House, now occupied by a farmer; and J.H. Holley, Esq., and the Rev. J. Perowne, have estates in the parish. The Church, (St. Peter and St. Paul,) is a stately pile, . . . in the chancel is a fine brass with a skeleton figure of John Brigge, dated 1454. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £12. 19s. 7d., has 30A. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £468, awarded in 1841, in lieu of tithes. The patronage is in Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, and the Rev. Edward Bulwer is the incumbent." [William White History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
