"TRUNCH, 3 miles N. of North Walsham, is a considerable village, said to have had a market as late as the 16th century. It is called Trunchet in Domesday Book, and has in its parish 464 souls, and 1354A. of land. It is a member of the manor of Gimingham Lancaster, held of the Queen by Lord Suffield, and the soil belongs to several owners, the largest of whom is Wm. Primrose, Esq., who erected a large brewery here in 1837. His family has been seated here about 3 centuries. The Church (St. Botolph,) has a tower and four bells. The living is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £10 13s. 4d., in the patronage of Catherine-Hall, Cambridge, and incumbency of the Rev. Thomas Jarrett, who has a good residence (rebuilt in 1832,) 23A. 1R. 7P. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £420, awarded, in 1839, in lieu of tithes. The Methodists have a small chapel here.
