"TRIMINGHAM, a small village on the lofty sea cliffs, is about 6 miles N. of North Walsham, and 5 miles E.S.E. of Cromer, . . . A sea wall, or breakwater, was erected in 1842, by the late Sir T.F. Buxton. The parish contains 222 souls, and about 500A. of land, mostly belonging to Sir E.N. Buxton, Bart., and Lord Suffield. The latter is lord of the manor. The Church (St. John,) was visited in ancient times by pilgrims, . . . The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6, was augmented, in 1793, with £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty, and had upwards of five acres of glebe, but more than half of it has gone into the sea. The tithes were commuted, in 1839, for £142 per annum, of which £7. 10s. belongs to the rector of Sidestrand. The Queen is patroness, and the Rev. Robert Steele, of Paston, is the incumbent. John Warnes, jun., Esq., has a neat house here, and built the school, where about thirty poor children are instructed.
