"SWANTON-NOVERS, a scattered village, 6 miles S.W. by S. of Holt, has in its parish 293 souls, and 1320 acres of land. The common was enclosed in 1811. Here is a stratum of clay, of which bricks and coarse earthenware are made. Lord Hastings owns most of the soil, and is lord of the manor. The CHURCH (St. Edmund,) has a nave, tower, and chancel, the latter rebuilt in 1821. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £4.15s.2d., is consolidated with that of Wood Norton. The Methodists have a small chapel here. "[William White History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
