Norfolk: East Carleton

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

CARLETON, (EAST) 5 miles S.W. by S. of Norwich, has in its parish 310 souls, and 1116 acres of land. Sir J.P. Boileau, W. Hurnard, Esq., and the Revs. J.H. Steward and G. Preston, own most of the soil, but the Norwich Charity Trustees (formerly the Corporation,) are lords of the manor of East Carlton-with-Hethel, which they hold by the service of carrying yearly to the "royal household" 24 herring-pies, but none have been presented since 1834. (See page 85 [which is part of the History of Norwich].) Here is another manor, called Carlton-Curzon and Peverels, of which the Rev. J.H. Steward is lord.

East Carlton was anciently two parishes, and had two Churches, standing within 50 yards of each other; but St. Peter's was dilapidated in 1550, and only a few fragments of it now remain; though its discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at 6, and in 1831, at 138, is still continued as a sinecure, in the gift of the Crown, and incumbency of the Rev. Samuel Barker, of Lakenheath, Suffolk. St. Mary's is a small building, with a short square tower and wooden spire, and is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at 4, and in 1831, at 181, in the gift of the Norwich Charity Trustees, and incumbency of the Rev. Robert John Francis.
