KESWICK, near the railway and the Yare, 3 miles S.S.W. of Norwich, has in its parish 117 souls, and 722 acres of land, nearly all the property of Hudson Gurney, Esq., the lord of the manor, who occupies the New Hall, but has another residence in London.
Henry Birkbeck, Esq., banker, occupies the Old Hall. The other residents are Miles Blomfield, miller; and Fras. Spalding, maltster and land agent.
Of the Church (All Saints,) nothing remains but part of the round tower; the rectory, valued in the King's Book at £5, having been long consolidated with that of Intwood.
