SPIXWORTH, 4 miles N. by E. of Norwich, has only 52 souls and 2009 acres of land, belonging to John Longe, Esq., the lord of the manor, who resides at the Hall, a large mansion, in an extensive and well-wooded park. He is also patron of the Church (St. Peter,) which has several memorials of his family, and two ancient recumbent effigies of Wm. Peck and his wife.

The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6, and now enjoyed by the Rev. George Howes. The glebe is 7A. 2R. 15P., and the tithes have been commuted for £306 per annum.
