East Tuddenham

Primary tabs

"TUDDENHAM (EAST) is a pleasant village of detached houses, 6 miles E. of East Dereham, and 9 miles W. of Norwich; comprising in its parish 103 inhabitants, and 1085 acres of land, forming the manors of Cockfields, Astleys, Berrys and Aphaws [sic], of which Lord Bayning is lord; but S. and J.K. Gooch, Esqrs., have estates here, . . . The CHURCH (All Saints) stands half a [mile] from the village, and is a neat Gothic structure,  . . . and several other devices, painted by the widow of the late vicar, the Rev. Edward Mellish, Dean of Hereford, who died in 1830, . . . and a mutilated effigy, supposed to represent Sir Edm. de Berry. The vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £7.6s., was augmented in 1723 with £200, given by F. Tilney, Esq., and £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty. It is consolidated with that of Honingham. The Rev. Wm. Smith is the incumbent, and Lord Bayning is the patron and impropriator. Here is a National School for this parish and Honingham. East Tuddenham TOWN LANDS, 16A.1R., were given by John Proo, in the 19th of Henry VIII., to pay the common charges of the parish.  …  There are also five cottages, supposed to have been given by John Proo, and occupied by paupers.
