[Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]

FIELD-DALLING, a village and parish, 5 miles W. of Holt, has 403 souls, and about 1,600 acres of land, belonging to the Rev. W. Upjoin [sic], Messrs. John Sayers, (lord of the manor) E.B. Manning, W.L. Rix, and several smaller owners.

The CHURCH (St. Andrew,) has a tower and five bells, and the living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £5 8s. 1d., in the patronage of the Rev. Arthur Bellman, and incumbency of the Rev. Wm. Upjoin [sic], A.M. The tithes were commuted in 1839, for £354 per annum to the impropriator, and £159 to the vicar.

Here was an alien Priory, or cell, the site of which is a small manor, belonging to the Dean and Chapter of Norwich.

The Fuel Allotment, awarded at the enclosure, in 1808, is 24A. 1R. 5P., let for £20. The poor have also 2A. 2R. 26P. of land, left by Christopher Ringer, in 1678, and now let for £3 15s.
