Norfolk: Matlaske

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

MATLASK, 7 miles N.N.W. of Aylsham, has in its parish 198 souls, and 547 acres of land, mostly the property of Dennis Gunton, Esq., who has a pleasant seat here.

The Church (St. Peter,) has a tower, round at the base and octangular above. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at 5, and was augmented in 1731, with 200 of Queen Anne's Bounty, and 200, given by Richard Whitaker, laid out in 40A. of land, at Gresham. The glebe is 10A., and the tithes were commuted in 1841, for 130 per annum. The Rev. A. Langton, of Hempstead, near Holt, is incumbent, and the Queen, as Duchess of Lancaster, is patroness.
