[Transcription copyright © Richard Johns]

BANNINGHAM, a village and parish, 2½ miles N.E. of Aylsham, has 329 souls, and 908 acres of fertile land, belonging to various owners. W.H. Windham, Esq., is lord of the manor.

The Church (St. Botolph) has a square tower, with only one bell, the other two being sold in 1808, towards paying the expense of re-leading the nave. It has some remains of ancient stained glass, and is about to be re-pewed. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £10. 5s. 10d., has 17A. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £383, awarded, in 1842, in lieu of tithes. S. Bignold, Esq., is patron, and the Rev. Wm. Jex Blake, of Lammas, incumbent.

Here is a Primitive Methodist Chapel, built in 1828.

The poor have £4. 10s. a year from 30A. of land, left, in 1723, by the Rev. Samuel Wanley, who gave the rectory house, garden, &c., for the use of the succeeding rectors. The poor have also 30s. a year, from 3 roods, called the Labourers' Pightle.
