Norfolk: Honing

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

HONING, a small village and parish, on the east side of the canal, nearly 4 miles S.E. of North Walsham, has 344 inhabitants, 1024A. of enclosed land, and about 300A. of wood, heath, and common. The principal owner and lord of the manor, is Edward Geo. Cubitt, Esq., of Honing Hall, a large modern mansion of brick, with a richly-wooded lawn.

The CHURCH (St. Peter and St. Paul,) was re-built in 1796, except the tower. The vicarage, valued in the King's Book at 4. 13s. 4d., is consolidated with that of Dilham. (See page 478 [which is the entry for Dilham.) The glebe here is 17A., and the tithes were commuted in 1842, for the yearly rent of 145 to the vicar, and 283 to the Bishop of Ely, the appropriator.

The poor have the interest of 46, arising from the sale of a house left by John Gibbs. Rents amounting to 37s. 17s. [sic] a year from 3A. 2R. 36P., left by Thomas Husband, in 1613, and 18A. 3P., left by John Baxter, are disposed of as follows: 12 for schooling about 15 poor children; 10s. to poor widows; about 20s. to lying-in-women; and the residue is carried to the accounts of the churchwardens, who held a balance of 132. in 1833.
