DUNSTON, on the small river Tas, 4 miles S. of Norwich, has in its parish 107 souls, and about 600 acres of land, all the property of R. K. Long, Esq., of Dunston Hall, the lord of the manor, impropriator of the tithes, and patron of the Church, (St. Remigius,) which is a curacy, valued in 1831 at £30, and now enjoyed by the Rev. H. C. Long. It was augmented, in 1762 and '92, with £400 of Q.A.B. In the chancel is a brass, with effigies of Clere Talbot and his two wives. Nearly all the parishioners died of the plague in 1349.
