PALLING, a small fishing village and parish, on the sea coast, 16 miles N.E. of Norwich, and 5 miles E. by N. of Stalham, has 425 souls, and 830 acres of land. H.J. Conyers, Esq., of Copt-Hall, Essex, owns a great part of the soil, and is lord of the manor, impropriator of the great tithes, and patron of the Church (St. Margaret,) which is a discharged vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £2. 6s. 8d., and augmented with £800 of Queen Anne's Bounty, vested in 20A. 3R. 27P. of land, at Hickling. It is consolidated with Waxham rectory, in the incumbency of the Rev. H. Ready, M.A. The tithes here have been commuted; the rectorial for £162. 18s., and the vicarial for £93. 8s. per annum.

Here is a National School supported by subscription. The Poor's Allotment, 14A., was awarded at the enclosure in 1812, and is let for £18.
