This has been found by the Norfolk transcribers for FreeREG, in the East Walton parish register of baptisms 1813-1905. It is inserted at the top of the page for 1861/62.

White's Directory of Norfolk for 1845 shows that the curate was
     Rev. Charles Jones Denton, M.A.
White's Directory of Norfolk for 1864 shows that the curate was
     Rev. James Coldham, M.A.

The Yorkshire parish is really Askham Richard.

Mr Denton was the curate for many years. JMC appears to be the new curate.

Mr Denton lived here with his 2 maiden sisters. They were a most worthy trio, full of quaint old fashioned ways. Of Welsh origins, the old ladies made yearly visits to Wales in their simple donkey-carriage; stopping en route at farm houses and friends houses. Mr Denton late in life became Incumbent of a Yorkshire parish (Ascombe Bichard ?[sic]). He came in 1839 and so lived here during 24 years. I have heard his claim to a Peerage was deemed a very strong one but he cd not afford to contest it.
