B. Boileau, lord of the manor and owner of the hall, now a farm house; and J. T. G. Browne, Esq., lord of Williams and Earls manors. The Church (All Saints,) has a square tower and five bells, and was rebuilt about 1500. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £12 has a yearly rent of £545, awarded in 1845 in lieu of tithes. The Rev. William Cobbold is incumbent, and Mrs. Warren, who has a neat residence here, is the patroness.
