Bagge, Esq., M.P., of Stradsett Hall, a large ancient mansion, in an extensive park, with a lake of 22A., abounding in pike and other fish. He is one of the parliamentary representatives of West Norfolk, impropriator of the great tithes of Stradsett, amd patron of the CHURCH, (St. Mary,) which is a neat stuccoed building, in the park. Its east window is of stained glass.

The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in K.B. at £3 6s. 8d., and in 1831 at £108. The Rev. Jonathan Townley is the incumbent.

The poor have £5 yearly, from Wm. Bagge, Esq., as a fuel rate, levied under the enclosure act of 41st Geo. III.
