Norfolk: Sculthorpe

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

SCULTHORPE, a large scattered village, 2 miles N.W. of Fakenham, has in its parish 591 souls, and 2,049 acres of land, mostly belonging to the lord of the manor - Sir L. Jones, Bart., and partly to Lord Hastings, and several smaller owners.

The CHURCH (All Saints,) has a fine tower, a curious Saxon font, and several ancient brasses. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at 16, and in 1831 at 553, has 71A. 21P. of glebe. Sir L. Jones, Bart., is patron, and the Rev. Edw. Marsham, M.A., incumbent. The tithes have been commuted for 550 per annum.

The Fuel Allotment 30A., was awarded to the poor at the enclosure in 1830, and they have also a double cottage and garden, occupied rent free, and 4A. 3R. 3P., left by Fras. Barkham in 1687.

Here is a Methodist Chapel.
