"THWAITE, or Thwayte, a small scattered village, on a pleasant acclivity, above a small rivulet, 4 miles N. of Aylsham, has in its parish 170 souls, and 608 acres, of which 482A. are assessable, and 50 are common. The Earl of Orford owns most of the soil, and is lord of the manor. The CHURCH, (All Saints,) has a round tower, and the living is a rectory, valued in the King's Book [at] £7, and now having about 7A. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £200, awarded in 1840, in lieu of tithes. The Bishop of Norwich is patron, and the Rev. John Stewart, of Erpingham, is the incumbent. . . . . Mrs. Lydia Baret, who has an estate and neat mansion in the parish, erected two School Rooms, with a house for the teachers, in 1835, at a cost of about £800. She supports the schools, on the national system, for the education of about 80 children."
