Primary tabs

"SEETHING, a well built village, 9½ miles S. E. of Norwich, has in its parish 449 souls, and 1571 acres of land, mostly belonging to G. S. Kett, Esq., of Brooke. Seething Hall, the seat of Mrs. H. Kett, is a large mansion . . . The blue sash, worn by Penn, at the treaty of Pennsylvannia, is in the possession of Mrs. Kett. The CHURCH (St. Margaret,) has a round tower, and the living is a perpetual curacy, valued in 1831 at £143, and now enjoyed by the Rev. J. T. Burt, M.A. The Trustees of the Great Hospital, Norwich are the patrons, and also impropriators of the great tithes, commuted for £383 per annum, in 1839. Here is a National School, established in 1813.  " [William White History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Mike Bristow]
