BARMER parish, 7 miles N.W. by W. of Fakenham, has only 61 souls, and 1,280 acres of land, belonging to Thos. Kerslake, Esq., of Barmer Hall, a neat mansion with pleasant grounds. He is also lord of the manor, impropriator of the tithes, and patron of the CHURCH, (All Saints,) which is a small dilapidated building, with a round tower. The living is a sinecure curacy, worth only £5 a year, and held by the Rev. E.J. Senkler, now in Canada. The inhabitants use Syderstone Church.
The only resident farmer is Mr. John Martin.
