Wallington cum Thorpland

Primary tabs

"WALLINGTON-CUM-THORPLAND, 3 miles N. by E. of Downham, form one parish, containing only 77 inhabitants, and 1,256A. of land, of which 350A. belong to Sir Thos Hare, and the remainder to Mrs. Peel, the lady of the manor, who resides at Wallington Hall, a large and handsome house, delightfully situated in a well-wooded park. It is the only house in Wallington, and was anciently the seat of the Coningsbys and the Gawdys. One of the latter was Judge Gawdy, who, in the reign of Elizabeth, converted the CHURCH, (St. Margaret,) into a hay-house and dog-kennel. The only part of it now remaining is the tower, surmounted by a small spire. The rectory is not in charge, and has long been consolidated with South Runcton and Holme. THORPLAND has two farms and five cottages, and had also a church, which was standing in 1434, but no traces of it now remain. The farmers are, John Coward and Robert Green." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
