BARMER parish, 7 miles N.W. by W. of Fakenham, has only 62 inhabitants, and 890 acres of land, belonging to Thomas Kerslake, Esq., who resides at Barmer Hall, a neat mansion with pleasant grounds, and is lord of the manor, impropriator of the tithes, and patron of the Church (All Saints), which is a small building with a round tower, restored some years ago, and now only used as the burial place of the Kerslake family.
The sinecure curacy, worth only £5 a year, is held by the Rev. E.J. Senkler, who is non-resident. The inhabitants attend Syderstone church.
Mr. Jno. Martin is the only resident farmer, and is also a miller.
