"SUSTEAD parish, 4 miles S.S.W. of Cromer, has 143 souls, and 483 acres of land, mostly belonging to W.H. Windham, Esq., lord of the manor, formerly held by the Damme family, who had a large mansion, near a rivulet, which abounds in trout. The CHURCH (St. Peter and St. Paul,) is a small edifice, with a round tower. The living is a perpetual curacy, certified at £16, and valued in 1831 at £34. It was augmented from 1779 to 1809, with £600 of Queen Anne's Bounty, laid out in land at Great Witchingham. W.H. Windham, Esq., is impropriator and patron, and the Rev. F.E. Arden, B.A., incumbent."
