SAXLINGHAM-THORPE, near the river Tas, 7½ miles S. of Norwich, is in Henstead union and hundred, Swainsthorpe petty sessional division, Norwich county court district and bankruptcy district, Stratton polling district of South Norfolk, West Brooke rural deanery, and Norfolk archdeaconry. It had 146 inhabitants in 1881, and 469 acres of land, and has a rateable value of £971.
John Steward, Esq., is lord of the manor. John Wakelin Miles, Esq., George Barnabas Teltham, Esq., and John Steward, Esq., own the greater part of the soil.
The CHURCH (St. Mary) is an ivy-clad ruin, being dilapidated long before 1740, when the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6 13s. 4d., was consolidated with that of Saxlingham-Nethergate.
Here is a small Baptist Chapel, built about 1818.
