"YELVERTON, on a bold acclivity, nearly 6 miles S.E. by E. of Norwich, has in its parish 82 souls, and 529 acres of land. The Earl of Rosebery is lord of the manor, and owner of most of the soil. The CHURCH (Virgin Mary,) is a neat fabric with a square tower, rebuilt in 1644, and containing three bells. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at ￡10, and in 1831 at ￡421, with that of Alpington annexed to it, is in the gift of the Crown, and incumbency of the Rev. Edward Postle, B.A. Till the new poor law came into operation, Yelverton and Alpington were united for the support of their poor, but they are now connected only in ecclesiastical affairs. The Church Land is 1A. 17P." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
