F Smalburgh



8* HUNDRED OF

Sifcalburgh was vacant, and that the abbot of St.
Bennet prcfemcd lad, and that feveral pcifons then
claimed ihe patronage : But all thcfc by fevcral deeds
without date, about the time of king John, releafed
all their right to the abbot.

The rc&or had a manfe and eight acres of land,
valued at thirteen marks. The prior of Norwich is
laid to have a portion of tithe, valued at 6s. The
prefcnt value is lol. 145. sd. and is difcharged.

In the rector's return, in 1603, he fays, that the
bifhop, and fir Philip Parker, late lord, were pa-
trons alternately.

In the church was the picture of Edward die Con-
fefibr, in his regalia, and his arms, and the arms of
Wythe, and thofe of Calthorpe.

In 1677 the flecple fell down, and defaced part
of the church; two bells were fold to build up a
gable, and one left in a fmall brick cupola creeled
for it on the weft end of the aile roof, which is
leaded, but the chancel is tiled.

The bifhop of Norwich had the patronage on the
exchange of the lands (in the reign of Henry V11I.)
of the abbot of Holme.

Smalburgh lies next the marfh grounds, on the
road between Yarmouth and North Walfham. Over
the river Ant is a bridge, commonly called Wafer-
biidge, a corruption, no doubt, of Way-ford.

In 1762 the Rev. Richard Humfrey was prefcnted
to this reclory.

The church of Smalburgh, in the time of Ed-
ward IV. is fa id to have been forty-two paces long,
and eighteen broad.

SWAFIELD, or SWATHFIELD, wrote in Doomf-
dav-book Sunrlelda, Suawlda, and Suafella. A
lordfhip in diis town belonged to the bifhop of
Theilbrd before and at the furvey, as part ol the
ice, and Jcfiicy held it of the bifliop; there were
lands, Sec. valued at 55. 4d. and there were twenty-
eight acres belonging to the church, and a borderer,
with two acres of meadow, valued at 2. '1 ii*
whole was one leuca long, and four furlongs and
one pcuh broad, &:c. and paid iSd. g'J.t.

William de Curechun, or Curzon, and Julian dc
Swafield, held between them half a fee of the bi-
{hop ; and in the sd year of king John, Julian had
by a fine the patronage of the church, with th;
manor-houfc, afligned him by William, but the land?
were Hill held in equal moieties between them.

After this, Nicholas Botclcr had a moiety; and in

the 15.11 of Henry 111. William de St. Clere. who

.:ed it, (old it to William de Hcvemngham

byline.

In the faid reign William de Mundcflcy held in
dcmefne a quarter of a fee, and this was held, in
the 2oth of Edward III. bv Laurence Sprigg; and
in the 4th of Henry IV. by John dc Mundeford, <u

William de Schoics had, at the furvey, a grant
of fix acres of land, of which a free-man was de-
prived, valued at 6d. and the abbot of Holme had
the foe of it.

Ranulf, brother of Ilgar, had alfo a grant of
eighteen acres, which two free-men were deprived
of, with a carucate and an half acre of meadow, Valued
at 1 6d. This leems to have come afterwards to the
earls Warren.

The earl Warren's manor of North Walfham ex-
tended into this town, and William de Repps, Sec.
held lands in the gth of Edward II. of the laid earl ;
as did alfo the heirs of Plais.

In the 5th of Edward III. the jury prefented, that
the earl's tenants in this town ought not to common
in North Walfham.

John Flegg had a meffuage, with lands, and a
fofd-courie here, Sec. in the ggd of Henry 111.

From the earls Warren it came to the earls of
Lancaflcr, and fo to the crown, and became part of
the Duchy of Lancafter, and is fo at this time.

The prior of Broomholme's manor in North Wal-
fham extended here. This was granted, in the 4th
and 5th of Philip and Mary, to Francis Chaloner,
and William Butler, September 6 ; and in the 2oth
of Elizabeth was poffeifed by Thomas Gryme, gent.
Their temporalities were 45. and yd.

The village of Swafield lies a mile north of North
Walfham, on the road towards Trim'mingham. It
is pleafandy fituated near the river Ant, from which

the



T U N S T E A D. 85

the country lifcs to the church, half a mile north
of the village.

The church is a reclory, dedicated to St. Nicholas;
the carl Warren had the patronage in the reign of
Edward I. but is faid to have no right, the church
being founded on the land and manor of the bifhop
of Norwich ; the retor had no rnanfe, or land, be-
longing to it ; it was valued at fix marks and an half.
The prefent value is 61. and is difcharged.

In 1372 the re&or was prefcnted by John king of
Caftile; and in 1605 feventy-fivc communicants
were returned to be here.

In 1772 the Rev. Thomas Meux was prefented to
this reclory: The patronage is in the chancellor of
the Duchy of Lancaftcr.

The temporalities of St. Bennet of Holme were
i is. gd. ob.

William dc Glanvile, the founder of the priory
of Broomholme, gave the tithe of the paunage of
(he turbary of Swafield.

TUNSTEAD, or TUNSTKDE, called, according
to Mr. Parkin, " Tonefteda in the Saxon age, from
its fcite on a rivulet, called Tun, or Tony, as Tun-
bridgo, 8cc." But this etymology of the Rev. author
we utterly deny, as being erroneous, either with rc-
fpccl to its fituation, or derivation. Alfer, a noble-
man, or thane of Harold, was lord of it in the time
of the ConfefTor, on whofe deprivation it was given,
to Roger of Poicliers, in France, third fon of Roger
cle Montgomery, who was made earl of Lancafter.

This was a \-cry confidcrable lordfnip in Aifer's
time, which was greatly augmented in the time thai:
the Conqueror held it, and Ralph earl of A'orlulk
alfo added to it,

Robert the crofs bow-man added lands after eail
Ralph's fovfeirur , in Hoveton.to it; die whole when
Robert held it under Godric, (and it was in the king's
hands) was valued at lol. at the furvey at ill. it was
one leuca and a quarter long, one broad, and paid
iyd, gelt.

Roger de Poicliers, earl of Lancafler, is faid to
have been deprived for rebellion , and in the reign of
Henry II. it appears to be in the family of de del-
ley, who were barons of the realm.

Albert dc Grelley died pofJefled of it, leaving one
fon and three daughters. This lordfhip ofTunflead
was then valued at 30!.

In the aforefaid year Lauretta, daughter of Euftach
Picot, had forne intereft here, in her own right, then
widow of Hugh dc Burdelys, ofScoulton, in Wiy-
land hundred.

Thomas Grelley wasjprd in the 44th of Henry III.
and had then a grant of a market weekly, of an an-
nual fair, and held it of the honor of Lancafler.

In the loth of Edward I. Thomas Eardolph was
found to hold three parts of a fee of it iu Spixwonh,
and paid fix marks per ami.

John deHoveton held the fourth part of a fee, Sec.
the barony extended into Suffolk, Oxfordfhire, Lin-
.colufhire, Leicefterfhjre, and Rutlandshire, and the

of this church, held in capitc. The bifhop of Bath
and Wells, the king's chancellor, had the care
of his fon and heir's lands.

John de Overton.the bifliop's bailiff, impleadcd, in
the i4ih of the (aid king, John Wyke, who had op-
pofed him (vi et armis) in his office, and recovered of
him ten marks damages, and 405. for himfelf, Wyke
being taken into cnflody ; and at this lime it appears
thai here was a paik.

Thomas de Grelley was lord in the ^Qd of Ed-
ward I. but in the gth of Edward II. Nicholas de
Meldon held it of the earl of Lancafter.

Soon after the ift of Edward III. if was fold to
fir John Stretch, who poffeffed it in the aoth of the
faid king.

John la Warr had alfo fomc intereft herein, which
he conveyed to fir John Stretch, with the advow-
fon ; it is probable Joan, his wife, was daughter
of Grelley; the Wefts, who married the lord Dc-la-
warr's heirefs, and a {fumed their title from them,
quarter la Warr's coat, and that of Grelley.

In the 27th of Edward III. fir John Stretch con-
veyed it to Henry earl of Lancaller, with the ad-
vowfon, and on the acceffion of Henry duke of Lan-
cafter to the crown, was made part or the Duchy of
Lancafter.

In the igth of Charles I. Robert Draper, efq. of

London, was found to die feizcd of a manor in Tun-

ftead, Hoveton, and St. John's, by the payment of

58!. 75. Sd. farthing, fee-farm rent to the crown:

after this it was held of the crown by Lepingjron
Carev, and conveyed by him in the reign of the faid
king to fir Richard Berney, bart. and is now pofTefTcd
by his heir, fir John Ikrnevyof Kirby-Bedcn, being
the prefent lord.

The temporalities of Broornholme priory were
2S. 6d. ob.

The church is dedicated to St. Mary, and has a
nave, with two ailes, and a chancel, covered with
lead, a fquare tower, and five bells.

In the reign of Edward I. the reclor had a graingc
and twenty acres, valued at twenty-four marks.

Henry duke of Lancafter granted the reclory, and
the advowfon of the free chapel of St. James, to the
priorefs and convent of Campes, in Suffolk, on the
requefl of his fiftcr, the lady Maud de Lancafter,
then a nun of the faid priory, and it was appropriated
to them for the fupport of a chaplain to celebrate
raafs daily. They prefemcd in 1351. On this the vi-
carage was fettled, taxed at ten marks ; the appro-
priated rectory at fouiteen marks.

ton, about 1600, then valued at iSl. gs. 6d. half-
penny, and returned Catherine Brend, widow, to be
the patronefs, and Jeffrey Bifliop, lately patron ; com-
municants ninety, and that he received only a pen-
lion of sol. per ann, of the proprietary, Catherine
Brend, widow.

In 1776 the Rev. Samuel Forfter was prefented to
this church, confolidated with Sco-Rufton, by Wil-
liam Pearce Clarke, efq. p.j.

The chapel of Sco-RusioN abovementioned, be-
longing to the church of Tunflead, is v/rote in the
inftiuuion books Sculmerton. which was no doubt
an hamlet of Tunflead.

In the reign of Edward I. it had all the infignia of
a mother church, viz. baptifm, chrifm, and burial ;
and to the faid chapel belonged twenty-four manfions,
with all their obventions, great and fmall, and were
valued at feven marks ; it was dedicated to St.
Michael; there was alfo his guild, and light, and fix.
others.

Parkin fays, " Sculmerton (Sco-Ruflon) fignifics a
town by a (hallow meer."

William de Ufford, earl of Suffolk, was lord of it
in the 471!} of Edward III.

Sir Henry Inglofe died lord in 1451, and fir Ed-
round Jenny left it to his fon, John, in 1522; ahcr-
\vards it was in the Potts'.

The church of Tunflead is a large and handfome
pile, with a lofty tower, feen afar : it Hands alone,
near the meeting of five roads. The town Hands
chiefly on the road from Norwich, by Wroxham-
bridgc, to Worftead and North Walfham, but it is dif-
ficult to afcertain, unlefs by a local furvey, how far
this extcnfive parifh reaches on each fide of the great
ftreet.

NORTH WALSH AM is fourteen miles from Nor-
wich, twenty-four from Yarmouth, three from Wor-
flcad, feven from Happifburgh, nine from Cromer,

at the fiirvcy the abbot -had lands, Sec. valued at loos,
it was one lencu and a half long, and one leuca and
fix. perches broad, paid iSd. golt, and the church
\vas endowed with thirty acres. The abbot had alfo

In the igth of Henry III. William de Fclmingham
quit-claimed to the abbot (who held this lordfhip as
part of his baron}-) all his right in the common paf-
tur.e here, and in Swanton abbot, for three marks of
filvcr. About the year 1256 the rent of affize was
5!. 1 6s, 5d. q. and there were 120 acres of arable
land, rented at 403.

About this time the abbot granted to fir Richard
Butler a chapel in his rnefluage at Waluham, and
Richard releafed to him all his right of common in
(he woods of Walfham and Swanton, the abbot then
inciofing thofe woods, and had re 1 cafes from firVc-

In the 14th of Edward I. the abbot claimed view
of frank-pledge, the affize, 8cc. having had divers
fervices aliened to the abbey.

In the 3d of Henry IV. the priors of Norwich,
Fakenham, Pcntncy, and Broomholme, the heirs of
Philip dc Worftead, and John de Mauteby, held

&c. took 200 roaches, 200 perch, and 300 eels, to

VIII. Catherine Heydon was found to be her heirefs
and couiin.

The earl Warren had a lorcHLip here, of which
t\vo free-men were deprived valued in king; Edward's
reign at aos. at the fmvey at/jos. The abbot of St.
Bennct had the foe, and the commendation, or pro-
tection of them, before the conqucft.

By ?.n inquifirion taken in the $d of Edward III.
the jury found, that the earl had but an acre of
demefne land, but feveral free tenants, viz. the
abbot of St. Bennet, the lord of Eve, in Suffolk, &rc.
and that they ought to appear at the coming of the
juftices, fheriffs, &c. by four men and the reeve, and
to anfvyer for the fifth part of the town; that they
ought to be toll free, in the market here and town,
that the earl had all the amercements of his tenants
of the barony and foe of Gimmingham, amerced in
the leet of the abbot of thofe who were refidents on
theeaiTsfec; that the maikct was ufcd in a place
called the Heath, of the iffues whereof the earl had
one moiety, and the abbot the other ; that the carl's
tenants were hindered of their common in Loud-leu,
Gerdes-rncadow, and Hilmore, by ponds made there-
in by the abbot and Robert Bryan.

But by another inquifuion it was found that
Gerdes>-mcadow was the feparate foH of the abbot,
and as to Louft-fen, and Hilmore, they were moots
particularly belonging to the abbot, who made ponds
there, and like his ieparate fifhery ; that the earl's
tenants of North WaKiiam, and Swafield, ought not
to common there. As to the market on the heath,
they fay that there never was any market there; that
the abbot always had his maiket where it now is;
that all the men of Gimmingham foe were to pay toll
there, as the eaiTs haying the amercement of his te-
nants ;

Bv another, in the isth of Edward II. taken at
Ghnmingham, the jury fay that the tenants of the
call, free and bond, of the foe of Gimmingham. ex-,
ccpt the tenants of the new land, paid toll of all their
corn and barley, but never paid toll for their bcalU
fold, nor the tenants of the new land.

BRYAN'S and WALSHAM'S MANOR. Robert Bryan
was lord in the 3d of Edward III. Sir Henry fngiofc
ordered it by his will, in 1451, to be fold.

In the37th of Henry VIII. the manor of Brvan.

The market crofs was built by bifhop Thirlby, in
the reign of Edward VI. and after repaired by bifhop
Redman in 1600, and the arms of the fee and his,
impaled, are on it.

The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas, and was al-
jvaysin the patronage of St. Bennet's abbey of Holme.
In the reign of Edward I. this rectory was valued at
iixty-two marks ; Peter-pence i 8d. and the reclor had
a manfe with forty acres of land. The church is
large, has a nave, with two ailes, and a chancel, co-
vered with lead ; the tower is down, but there arc
three bells in the lower part of the church.

In the 15th of king John, in the vacancy of an ab-
bot, the king prefented Bartholomew archdeacon of
Winchefler to this reclory.

In 1261 Raymond de Servietta, fub-deacon, chap-
lain, and nephew of the late pope, Alexander IV. was
rcclor of this church, and of Tryng, in Hertford-
(hire.

Edward I. in his 1 2th year, granted licence to the
