THREXTON, a small parish, 2½ miles W. of Watton, has 80 inhabitants, and 1097 acres of land, about 400 of which belong to Jno. Remington Mills, Esq., M.P., and the rest to Thomas Barton, Esq., the lord of the manor, who resides at Threxton House. Several Roman coins, and a bronze fibula of the Anglo-Saxon period, have been found here.

The Church comprises nave, chancel, north aisle, and round tower with one bell. The roof was restored in 1846, and the church rebuilt in the succeeding year. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £7. 4s. 9d., is annexed to Swaffham.
