Norfolk: Egmere

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

EGMERE parish, 3 miles W. of Walsingham, has only 54 inhabitants, and about 1,200 acres of land, nearly all occupied by Thos. Denny, and belonging to the Earl of Leicester, the lord of the manor, and patron of the rectory, valued in the King's Book at 8, and in 1831 at 180, with the vicarage of Holkham annexed to it, in the incumbency of the Rev. John Ackroyd, M.A.

Egmere CHURCH (St. Edmund,) has been long in ruins, and was first desecrated by Sir Nicholas Bacon, who turned it into a barn. Only part of the tower now remains.
