Norfolk: East Beckham

William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1883

BECKHAM (EAST), 5 miles E. by N. of Holt, is in Erpingham union, Holt county court district, Norwich bankruptcy district, North Erpingham hundred and petty sessional division, Cromer polling district of North Norfolk, Repps rural deanery, and Norfolk archdeaconry. It had 45 inhabitants in 1871, living on 735 acres, and has a rateable value of about £600. The trustees of the late W.H. Windham, Esq., are the owners of the soil, lords of the manor, and impropriators.

The CHURCH (St. Helen) has long been in ruins, finely mantled with ivy. The inhabitants use Aylmerton church, and formerly the impropriators allowed the rector of that parish a yearly modus of £20.
