TIVETSHALL ST. MARGARET, partly on an eminence, 6 miles N.N.E. of Diss, is a parish in Depwade union, Diss hundred and petty sessional division, Harleston county court district, Ipswich bankruptcy court district, Diss polling district of South Norfolk, Redenhall rural deanery, and Norfolk archdeaconry. It had 339 inhabitants in 1881, and comprises 1668 acres of land. The rateable value is £3023. J.Hotson, Esq. (who is lord of the manor), the Rev. G. M. Norris, Mrs. Spelman, Jabez Jarvis Spelman, and Randall E. Burroughes, Esq., are the chief owners.
Here is a station on the Great Eastern Railway, from Norwich to Colchester, &c., near its junction with the Waveney Valley line, which extends eastward to Harleston, Bungay, &c. An oak tree in this parish is supposed to be the largest in the county, measuring 21 feet in circumference. Extensive manure works were erected here in 1858 by Mr. Alexander William Pashley, and give employment to many hands.
The CHURCH consists of nave, chancel, and square tower with five bells, and was partially restored and much improved in 1862. The living is a rectory, consolidated with that of Tivetshall St. Mary.
The Society of Friends has an old meeting house and burial-ground, and the Wesleyans have a small chapel here.
(For SCHOOL BOARD, see Tivetshall St. Mary.)
The Poor's Allotment, 6 acres, awarded at the enclosure in 1808, is let for £12.

This land, with an allotment of 1R. 3P., awarded to it at the enclosure, is let for £12.
