Tilney St Lawrence
"TILNEY ST. LAWRENCE, 6 ½ miles S.W. of Lynn, and the same distance E.N.E. of Wisbech, is a large but scattered village and parish, which has increased its population since the year 1801, from 362 to 762 souls, and comprises 3,076A. 2R. 5P. of enclosed land, belonging to a number of freeholders, and partly lying in the same manors as Tilney All Saints, to which this is considered a parochial chapelry, - the benefice and tithes being in the same incumbency, patronage and appropriation; but the parishioners refused, some years ago to pay church rates to All Saints, having their own large CHURCH (dedicated to St. Lawrence,) to keep in repair. The latter appears to be as ancient as the former, and consequently, we should presume there is legally no other connexion between them, further than the consolidation of the livings. The glebe here is 5 acres, and the Church land 7 ½ acres. The vicar has here 3A. of land, left by John Crane. . . . The Primitive Methodists have a small chapel here, and another at FEN-END, a hamlet partly in this parish."
