Norfolk: Carleton St Peter

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

CARLETON ST. PETER, 8 miles S.E. of Norwich, is a parish in Loddon union, Norwich county court district, and bankruptcy district, Loddon hundred, Loddon petty sessional division, Loddon polling district of South Norfolk, East Brooke rural deanery and Norfolk archdeaconry.

It had 94 inhabitants in 1881, living on 765 acres, and has a rateable value of 1028.6s.9d., and a gross rental of 1077.19s.3d. Sir Reginald Wm. Procter-Beauchamp, Bart., owns all the soil, and is lord of the manor. About 1822, an urn containing several gold and silver Roman coins of the lower empire was found here.

The CHURCH was restored in 1844, at a cost of 700, and comprises nave, chancel, south porch, and square embattled tower with four bells. In the chancel is a piscina, and a handsome oak screen. Sir Reginald William Procter-Beauchamp, Bart., and Sir Chas. H.S. Rich, Bart., are alternate patrons of the rectory, valued in the King's Book at 9, and now at 294, with that of Ashby annexed. The Rev. Robt. Thos. Whitmarsh is the incumbent, and resides at Ashby, where the rectory house is situated. Here are three acres of glebe, and the tithes of Carleton were commuted in 1840 for 170.
