Norfolk: Broomsthorpe

William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1845

BROOMSTHORPE is a small churchless parish, 6 miles W. by S. of Fakenham, containing only 10 souls, and 430 acres of land, belonging to Sir Chas. Chad, Bart., and occupied by Mr. John Ball.

Its CHURCH was destroyed before the reign of Elizabeth, and its benefice abolished. It had a guild of St. John, to whom the church was probably dedicated.

The farm house stands on the site of a house which was a seat of the Walpoles.
