EATON, 2 miles S.W., is also in the vale of the Yare. The manor is about 1300 acres, and belongs to the Dean and Chapter, but the soil is let to a number of lessees, many of whom have handsome houses here. [Page 153].
EATON CHURCH, dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle, stands also on the Yare, about 2 miles S.W. of the [ie Norwich] Market place, and is a long ancient fabric, covered with thatch, and having an embattled tower, with two bells. It is a vicarage, not in charge, valued, in 1831, at £87, and augmented, in 1732, with £200 given by the Earl of Thanet, and £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty. The Dean and Chapter are patrons, and the Rev. George Day, A.M., incumbent. [Page 118].
