William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1845[Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
SOUTHREPPS, a large village, about 5 miles S.S.E. of Cromer, and N.N.W. of North Walsham, has in its parish 813 souls, and 2081 acres of land, including 35A. of common, 27A. of roads, and 82A. of wood. It is in the manor of Gimingham Lancaster, held of the Crown by Lord Suffield, who owns about one-fourth of the soil. Here is a cattle fair on the Tuesday fortnight after Whit-Monday.
The CHURCH (St. James,) has a lofty tower, but its side-aisles were taken down in 1788, and the arches built up. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £16, has 12A. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £666, awarded in 1839 in lieu of tithes. The Queen, as Duchess of Lancaster, is patroness, and the Ven. Archdeacon Glover is the incumbent.
Here is a Methodist chapel, and on a lofty hill are the ruins of an old beacon, commanding an extensive prospect of sea and land. The Poor's Land, 2A. 2R. 31P., is let for £5. 15s. 6d.
