EARLHAM is a small hamlet on the banks of the Yare, 2 miles W. of Norwich. The greater part of the soil and the manor belong to the son of the late Bacon Frank, Esq., but the Hall is occupied by Joseph John Gurney, Esq., who has an estate here. The bridge was built in 1502, and rebuilt in 1579 and 1744. [Page 152].
EARLHAM CHURCH, dedicated to St. Mary, is a small building on the east bank of the Yare, about 2 miles W. of the [ie Norwich] Market place. It has a low square embattled tower, containing three bells, and partly mantled with ivy. It was re-pewed in 1834, and is a vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £5. 7s. 8½d., in the gift of the heirs of Bacon Frank, Esq., and now enjoyed by the Rev. George Cotterill. [Page 118].
