Terrington St John
"TERRINGTON ST. JOHN, 6 miles S.W. by W. of Lynn, is a parish and scattered village, chiefly on the Wisbeach road, containing 784 inhabitants, 185 houses and 2,506 acres of land, including roads and drains, comprised in the same manors as Terrington St. Clement, to which this was considered a parochial chapelry till 1843, when it was constituted a perpetual curacy, by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. Sir W. J. H. B. Ffolkes, Bart., Geo. P. Bentinck, John Fuller, and Robert Wright, Esqrs., are land owners, besides whom are a number of other proprietors, many of whom are residents. The Church, dedicated to St. John, stands on the north side of the parish, and was built "at Peyke's cross" in 1423, under a license granted by the Bishop of Ely, and made parochial by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1530. It is a handsome edifice, of brick, with a square tower containing six bells. The tower was repaired in 1843 at the cost of £150. The Rev. John Bramhall, B.A., the incumbent, has a neat parsonage house, . . . The Methodists have a Chapel here."
