"DICKLEBURGH-WITH-LANGMERE constitute one parish. The former is a village with 747 inhabitants, on the Norwich and Ipswich turn-pike, 5 miles N.E. of Diss, and the latter a hamlet and constablewick, a mile further to the east, locally situated in Earsham Hundred. They comprise 2055A. of land, exclusive of 160A. of commons, called Semere Green, High Green, and Dickleburgh Moor. The rector has a small manor, and the Earl of Orford is lord of the rest; but the soil belongs chiefly to copyholders, subject to arbitrary fines. The Church (All Saints,) is a large edifice, with a tower and five bells, and contains a monument of Lady Playters, daughter of Christopher Le Grys, who was stripped of his honors by the rebel parliament; and died in Spain. The rectory, formerly in four medieties, valued in the King's Book at £28, has about 100A. of glebe, a handsome residence, built in 1841, and a yearly rent of £725, awarded in 1839, in lieu of tithes. The patronage is in Trinity College, Cambridge, and the Rev. George Stevenson, M.A., is the incumbent." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Ann Duncan]
