"TOTTENHILL, a straggling village, near the Downham road, 5 miles S. by E. of Lynn, has in its parish 426 souls, and 1,463 acres of land, mostly the property of C.B.P. Plestow, Esq., the lord of the manor. The CHURCH, (St. Botolph,) is in that part of the parish called WEST-BRIGGS, and is a small fabric, with a lofty tower. The living is a perpetual curacy, which was augmented with £1,000 of Queen Anne's Bounty, from 1767 to 1842, and valued in 1831 at £62. The Bishop of Ely is appropriator and patron, and the Rev. Wm. Harold Henslowe, incumbent. " [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
