Warham All Saints

Primary tabs

"WARHAM ALL SAINTS and ST. MARY, 4 miles N. of Walsingham, and 2ス miles E.S.E. of Wells, form a large scattered village; and their parishes are united for the support of the poor and roads, but are separate in ecclesiastical affairs. They contain together 412 souls, and about 3,200 acres of land, including a tract of salt marshes, extending northward to the ocean. The Earl of Leicester owns all St. Mary's, and the greater part of All Saints; and is lord of the manors of Warham-Ducies and Warham-Hales, . . .The late Earl purchased these manors of the late Sir M.B. Ffolkes, ...  All Saints parish has 337 souls, and 1,172 acres; and St. Mary's, 75 souls, and 2,035 acres. . . . All Saints CHURCH is a small fabric,  . . . and the living is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £16, in the gift of the Crown; and has been enjoyed since 1792, by the Rev. Wm. Atkinson, of Thorpe-Arch, Yorkshire, for whom the Rev. D. Carver, of Wells, officiates. The glebe is 8½A., and the tithes have been commuted for £247 per annum. St. Mary's CHURCH is a handsome edifice,  . . . Here were formerly two churches, (St. Mary Magdalen, and St. Mary the Virgin,) and their rectories, valued in the King's Book at £11 6s. 8d., are consolidated with that of Waterden, in the patronage of the Earl of Leicester, and incumbency of the Rev. Robt. Collyer, A.M. The joint rectories were valued in 1831 at £500. The glebe here is 15A., and the tithes of Warham St. Mary have been commuted for £373 10s. per annum." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]

Together, Warham All Saints and Warham St Mary are often known as Warham.
