Norfolk: Burnham Sutton with Ulph

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

[Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]

BURNHAM ULPH AND SUTTON now form one parish, with a small village, adjoining the east end of the market town of Burnhan [sic] Westgate, and comprising 355 inhabitants, and 1,450A. of land, chiefly lying in two farms, one belonging to the Earl of Leicester, and the other called Muckleton, the property of the Earl of Orford, and distant 2 miles S.W. of the village.

Sutton Church (All Saints,) has long been a venerable ruin; but it is all gone, except the tower and part of the north wall of the nave.

Ulph Church, dedicated to St. Albert or Ethelbert, is a small edifice, with a single bell, hanging between two turrets at the west end.

The rectory of Burnham Sutton, valued in the King's Book at 17 10s., and in 1831 at 669, is in the gift of the Crown, and is enjoyed by the Hon. and Rev. Fredk. Hotham, M.A., with the vicarage of Burnham Overy. Annexed to it are medieties of the rectories of Burnham Norton and Ulph, and the other moiety of the latter is annexed to Burnham Westgate.

The Methodists have a small chapel here.

The names of the churches appear to have been wrongly attributed. St Ethelbert's at Burnham Sutton is in ruins. All Saints is still in use.
