Norfolk: Wood Dalling


William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1845

[Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]

WOOD-DALLING, a scattered village and parish, including CRABGATE and TYBY, from 3 to 4 miles N. by W. of Reepham, has 560 inhabitants, and 2443A. 2R. 35P. of land, lying partly in a fertile dale, from which it was anciently called Dallinga. It was long held by the Dalling family, one of whom built the hall, (now a farm-house,) about 1582.

W.E.L. Bulwer, Esq., and Lady Suffield, are now owners of most of the parish. The former has the quit-rents, and the latter the arbitrary fines of the manors of Wood-Dalling, Monceaux, and Halwood-Noijons. The former is sole lord of Crabgate, which lies in his manor of Heydon Hall.

The Church (St. Andrew) is a large fabric, containing several inscriptions and brasses to the Bulwers. The vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £8. 8s. 4d., is consolidated with the rectory of Swannington. (See page 357 [which is the entry for Swannington].) The patronage, with 110 acres of land, and the rectorial tithes, belong to Trinity Hall, Cambridge. The latter were commuted, in 1839, for £379. 19s. 11d. per annum, and are now held on lease, by the Rev. S. Pitman. The vicarial glebe is 56A. 1R. 38P., now let for £90. The vicar has also a yearly modus of £38. 9s. 6¾d.

Here is an Independent, and also a Primitive Methodist chapel.

The poor have a yearly rent charge of £6. 10s., left by Edward Bulwer, in 1658, out of land called Blooms.
