Norfolk: Holt

William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1883

[Transcription copyright Juanita Hadwin]

HOLT is a neat market town, pleasantly situated on rising ground at the junction of several public roads and on the Eastern and Midlands Railway (now constructing), 21 miles N.N.W. of Norwich, 12 miles N.W. by N. of Aylsham, 18 miles N. by E. of East Dereham, 4 miles S.S.E. of Blakeney and Cley, 10 miles W. by S. of Cromer, and 119 miles N.E. by N. of London. It is in Erpingham union, Norwich bankruptcy district, Norwich archdeaconry, and is the head and gives name to a hundred, a petty sessional division, a rural deanery, and a county court district. It has much improved of late years, and its population increased from 1004 in 1801 to 1535 in 1881; the area is 2991A.

The rateable value is 6430 12s. 6d., and the gross estimated rental, 7244 15s. The parish is generally fertile and arable, but has some ancient woods and several extensive plantations upon the heath, which was enclosed by an Act passed in 1807, when 120A. were allotted to supply those parishioners with fuel who do not rent above 10 a year. The soil belongs to a number of proprietors, the largest of whom are the lords of the four manors: viz. Holt, Holt Market, and Holt Hales, belonging to the trustees of the late Hudson Gurney, Esq.; and Holt-Pereers, of which the Fishmongers' Company, in London, are owners, as trustees of the Grammar School. The two first are subject to arbitrary fines on admission, and the others to certain fines. Robert Cooper, Esq., of Norwich, is steward for Mr. Gurney's manors; and S. Cozens-Hardy, Esq., of Norwich, is steward for Holt-Pereers. A court leet is held on or about St. Thomas's day for the former. The other principal landowners are the Marquis of Lothian, John Rogers, George Barker, and W.H. Cozens-Hardy, Esqs.

From its high situation the town of Holt is remarkably salubrious. The Market Place and High Street contain many spacious and well-stocked shops, and the streets are well paved and are lighted with gas. In the vicinity are numerous thriving plantations and several handsome seats, amongst which may be mentioned the Grove, the Lodge, occupied by J.A. Hardcastle, Esq., M.P. for Bury St. Edmunds, the Woodlands, and the Hall, a large red brick mansion in the Tudor style, enlarged and improved in 1864 by its present owner and occupier, John Rogers, Esq., J.P.

Gas works were erected in 1841 by the late Mr. John Randall, and now belong to the Holt Gas Company (Limited), who charge at the rate of 6s. per 1000 cubic feet.

On May day, 1708, a great part of the town was destroyed by an accidental fire, which burnt with such fury 'that the butchers could not save the meat on their stalls.'

On Spout Common, on the south-west side of the town, a copious spring issues out of the gravel hill, and affords an ample supply of pure soft water, which is carried in carts to the town, where there are also three public pumps. The spring head is walled round, and is visited by many as a natural curiosity, and for the purpose of enjoying the fine prospect which it commands over the romantic valley of the Glaven.

The Market, held every Wednesday, is well supplied with corn, &c.; and here are two annual stock fairs, on April 25 and November 25. The Corn Hall is a brick and flint building, originally erected for a Baptist chapel, but converted to its present use in 1857. Petty sessions are held on the fourth Saturday in every month at the Shire Hall, where Quarter sessions were formerly held. The division comprises the parishes named on pages 34 and 35. [This is the section about Petty Sessional Divisions]. The magistrates are W.H. Cozens-Hardy, Esq., E.B. Sparke, Esq., J. Rogers, Esq., Rev. T.J.G. Marsham, J.A. Hardcastle, Esq., M.P., and C.W.H.C. Hardy, Esq. H.S. Ransom, Esq., is clerk to the magistrates.

The Police Station, on Hempstead Road, is a brick edifice, erected in 1855, and containing two cells and residences for the inspector and one constable. The County Court is also held every alternate month for a district, comprising the parishes enumerated on pages 40 and 41. [This is the section about County Courts]. E. Plumer Price, Esq., Q.C., is judge; G. Wilkinson, Esq., registrar and high bailiff; and William Groom, assistant bailiff.

The CHURCH (St. Andrew) is an ancient structure in the Early English style, comprising nave with aisles and clerestory, south porch (used as a vestry), chancel, and square tower containing one bell and a clock. It was thoroughly restored in 1864, and fitted with new open seats, but there is still an old gallery in the north aisle. A new organ, built by Bryceson of London, was placed in a new organ chamber in 1882, at a cost of 500, raised by subscription. Many of the windows are enriched with beautiful stained glass, several of them at the expense of John Hales, Esq.; the east window, by the widow and friends, was inserted to the memory of the late Rev. Humphrey Jackson. The sedilia and piscina still remain in the chancel, and there is another piscina in the south aisle.

The communion plate includes a flagon, the gift of 'George, Prince of Wales'; a silver alms dish, given by Lord Townshend; another alms dish, the donor being Robert Walpole; a silver cup, the gift of Dr. Briggs, a former rector, and chaplain in ordinary to George III. There are no dates upon these pieces, but the plate marks indicate the period between 1718-1725. Here are tablets of the Holmes, Hobart, Butler, Briggs and other families.

The rectory, valued in the King's Book at 11 17s. 3d., is in the patronage of St. John's College, Cambridge, and incumbency of the Rev. Edward Brumell, B.D., who is also rural dean. There are 57A. of glebe and a handsome rectory house, with pleasant grounds, commanding picturesque views. The tithes were commuted in 1839 for 585 per annum.

The Methodist Free Church, at the end of High Street, is an ornamental brick and flint building in the Early English style, erected in 1863 at a cost of 2000, and comprises a nave with aisles and clerestory, and a bell turret at the north-west angle. The Rev. John Wesley Worth is the minister. The Wesleyans and Primitive Methodists also have chapels here, the latter built in 1872.

The FREE GRAMMAR SCHOOL is an imposing pile of red brick in the Elizabethan style, comprising a commodious and elegant schoolroom, 60 feet long, a class-room, and a house for the master. It was erected at a cost of more than 3000, in 1858, in lieu of the old manor house of Holt Pereers, which was converted into a school, in 1554, by Sir J. Gresham, Kt., a native of Holt and an alderman and citizen of London. Sir J. Gresham endowed it with this manor and the Prior's Grove, and vested the management in the Fishmongers' Company for the education of 50 free scholars, to be chosen by them from the town of Holt and its neighbourhood, and instructed by a master and usher in reading, writing, arithmetic, English grammar, and the Latin, Greek, French, and German languages, free of charge. Attached to the school is an extensive playground, &c.

The endowment, which produced about 500 per annum, has considerably increased in amount. The master has a yearly salary of 350, and is allowed to take boarders. The second master, J.H. Howell, Esq., M.A., has a salary of 150 per annum. Books at one-third of the cost price, and stationery are provided out of the funds for the use of the scholars. There is an exhibition of 20 for four years to any University in the United Kingdom. B.C. Brough, Esq., is writing and English master. The Rev. R.J. Roberts, M.A., is the present head master. The Fishmongers' Company are governors of the school, and appoint visitors to inspect it. The governors grant additional exhibitions to deserving pupils on the recommendation of the master and visitors.

The NATIONAL SCHOOL was established in 1835, and the present building was built in 1843. It is attended by about 100 boys and girls, and 60 infants. A SCHOOL BOARD for the united district of Holt and Letheringsett was established in December 1877, and consists of W.H. Cozens-Hardy, Esq., J.P. (chairman), William Leggatt (vice-chairman), John Rogers, Esq., J.P., Rev. E. Brumell, B.D., and Mr. J.E. Jones. Mr. James Simmons is their clerk. The Board School use what was formerly the British School, in Withers Street, a neat flint building with red brick dressings, built by W.H. Cozens-Hardy, Esq., J.P., in 1851, at a cost of 600. It is attended by about 200 children.

The poor have four yearly rent-charges: viz. 2 10s., left by Blanche Schuldham, in 1738, for fortnightly doles of bread; 10s., left by Stephen Feake, in 1661; and two of 20s., left by Mr. Fitt and an unknown donor. For distributions of bread they have the interest of 178, left by the Rev. Joshua Smith in 1828; also the interest of 200, left by Wallace Mallett in 1852.

The Literary Society, in Withers Street, was established in 1854, and has upwards of 100 members, and a well-supplied newsroom and a good library of more than 3000 volumes. Mr. William Leggatt is librarian. Holt horticultural show is held annually. The Holt rifle corps comprises about 45 men, and was established in 1861. Rev. Charles Norris, Briston, is captain, and George Fisher, sergeant-instructor. Here are several friendly and benefit societies and lodges of Oddfellows and Foresters. The Working Men's Club and Coffee Rooms are at the Shire Hall, and were established in 1877. Here is also a fire engine station. Mr. William Randall is superintendent. In the town is a Nurses' Home.

Alice Pereers, of the family which formerly held Holt-Pereers manor, was the mistress of Edward III., who, in 1374, granted her all the jewels of Philippa, his late queen, to whom she had been maid of honour. After the death of Edward she was attainted, and her estates and goods forfeited; but on her marriage with Sir William de Wyndesore in 1380, Richard II. restored to her various manors and lands.

William Withers, Esq., of Holt, who died in 1848, was author of 'A Memoir addressed to the Society of Arts on the planting and rearing of Forest Trees, demonstrating the necessity of Trenching,' &c. For this production he received a silver medal. He afterwards published letters on the same subject to Sir Walter Scott and Sir H. Stuart, and a work on the acacia-tree. John Holmes, who was thirty years master of the Grammar School, died in 1760. He was author of 'A New Grammar of the Latin Tongue,' 'A Greek Grammar,' and several other elementary works. Thomas Girdlestone, M.D., was born here in 1758, and died in 1820, after acquiring a high reputation as a physician at Yarmouth, where he spent the last twenty years of his life.
