UPWELL AND OUTWELL.



IJPWELL is a parish, partly in the hundred of Wis-
bcach in this county, and partly in that of Clackclose,
Norfolk— the village, large and populons is situated
between 6 and 7 miles s.E. fremi Wisbeach, and on
boih sides of the river Nene. Demesday-book in-
forms us, that it belonged, with Outwell, to the abln-y
of Ramsey, and was at ihat period a place of some noie.
With respect to general trade, it has no claim to im-
portance ; agriculture, and tlie attention to garden
ground being the prevailine, if not tlie only occupation,
of the inhabitants ; and the produce of the land, which
is of great fertility, is forwarded to various places by
the navigable Nene, and bv the railway from Wisbeach
and March. The church is dedicated to Saint Peter ;
the living is a rectorv, of which the Uev. William
GaleTownley. is the present incumbent. The popu-
lation of Upwell parish (including Welney chapehy),
in 1831, was 4,156, and in 1841, 4,891



Adjoining to Upwell is the parish of Outwell,
situated similarly to the former— the Nene jwssing
through it, and heing p-artly in CatMbridgeshire and
partly' in the connty of Norfolk. From being seated
on a river it was in past ages called ff^tflla ; and in some
old records it is mentioned as ' the town of tVeUe.'
Near (he church once stoml a hermitage, dedicated to
Saint Christoplier; its site rs still pointed out, but no
remains of it are now perceptible. Agriculture is the
unvaried pursuit of the inhabitants— as to general
business, it is on an equality with Upwell. The vil-
lage, which is long -aw\ stiaegling, contains a neat
church, dedicated to Saint Clement, and a schotd sup-
ported by subscriptions. The living of Otitwell is a
r.'Ctory, in the patronage of the Bishop of Ely ; the
Uev. George Nicholas Dealtry is the present incumbent.
The entire parish contained in 1831, 986 inhabitants,
and in 1841, 1,252.

WHITTLESEY,

WITH THE VILLAGES OF EaSTREA, COATES AND NEIGHBOURHOODS.



Wf



HITTLESEY or Whittlesea, is an anient mar-
ket town, comprised in the united parishes of Saint
Andrew and Saint Mary, in the hundred of North
Witchford ; 78 miles N. by w. fiom London, 30 n. by
w. froiri Catnluidije, and 6§ e. from Peterborough
(Northamptonshire); situated on the Eastern Countie-
railway, for which line the compativ have a statitm
here. /^JtoiVisthename gi^eu toitin Domesday-book,
butits derivation has not been satisfact its church : Saint Mary's is a very
liatidsome structure, but most particularly admired for
its Iciftyand beautiful square tower,which is surmounted
by ataperiiig spire of the finest symmetry, highly orna-
mented. Saint Andiew'.^ is al»o a neat building, niid
is likewise ornamented with a verv fine square tower
and ttiriets. The pationage of Saint Mary's living is
in the lord of the manor, and the Crown has the gift
of Saint Andrew's. There are places of worship for



Baptists, Independents, Calvinists and Wesleyan Me-
thodists. There are two endowed schools : one founded
in 1735, by a Mr. Adam Kelfull, now conducted on
the national plan ; the other, founded in 1815, by John
Sudbury, Esq. A library and news-room has been
for a considerable time established, and is well sup-
ported by subscribers; and the Whittlesey Institution,
founded in 1847, is also prospeiou'*. Contiguous to
this parish, but in the county of Huntingdon, was
Whittlesey Mere, or, as it was sometimes termed,
the White Sea — a fine expanse of water, aboundiiig
with fish; but this is now being drained off, and will
speedily disappear. The market, held on Friday, was
for several years unattended ; but it has been revived,
and the contiguity of the railway has imparted an im-
petus toits business. An annual fair is held on the 13th
