TUTTINGTON, a pleasant village and parish, in a valley, 2 miles E. of Aylsham, has 227 souls, and 822 acres of land, partly in W.H. Windham, Esq.'s manor of Tuttington-with-Crackford, (fines abitrary,) and partly in Robt. Copeman, Esq.'s manor of Aylsham Wood, or Sextons, (fines certain.) Tuttington Hall, the beautiful residence and leasehold of Edwd. Blake, Esq., is the property of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge.
The Church (St. Peter and St. Paul,) has a round tower, and was repaired in 1749. The vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £5. 7d., was augmented from 1769 to 1796, with £600 of Queen Anne's Bounty, vested in 15A. of land, at Halvergate; besides which the vicar has 15A 3R. of glebe, allotted at the enclosure, in 1817, and a yearly rent of £105, awarded in 1841, in lieu of the small tithes. The Bishop of Ely is appropriator and patron, and the Rev. George Jarvis, B.D., incumbent. In 1214, here was a Chapel dedicated [to] St. Botolph, but no vestiges of it are now extant.
