HAUTBOYS, (LITTLE) which adjoins [Great Hautboys], was once a separate parish, but has long been united with that of Lammas. It has 42 inhabitants, and about 338 acres of land. The Bishop of Norwich is lord of the manor, but the soil belongs chiefly to Sir H.T.E. Durrant, Captain Davy, and Norwich Charity Trustees. The latter own Hautboys Hall, a large brick house, in the Elizabethan style, occupied by a farmer.
The Church (St. Mary,) stood near the Bure, but no vestiges of it are now extant. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £7, is consolidated with Lammas, which see.
