BAWBURGH, a small but pleasant village near the river Yare, 5 miles W. of Norwich, contains 89 houses, 460 souls, and 1,360 acres of land, in Lord Stafford's manor of Costessey ; but Sir Woodbine Parish, Knt., J. S. Muskett, and others have estates here. The Old Hall farm, containing 270 acres, belonged to the late Benj. Norton, Esq., who resided here for many years, and whose ancestors repaired the house in 1694, which has been in chancery for upwards of 20 years. It is now occupied by Mr. Geo. Crow. The Church, dedicated to St. Mary and St. Walstan, had anciently six chantry priests serving at the altar of St. Walstan, who was enshrined in the north chapel of this church, and whose well, which is still to be seen, was long celebrated for its supposed healing virtues. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the King's book at £13 7s. 6d., and in the gift of the Dean and Chapter of Norwich, and incumbency of the Rev. George Carter. The former are appropriators of the great tithes, which were commuted in 1840, for £251, and the vicarial for £109 per annum. John Wagstaffe, in 1809, left the dividends of £50 three per cent. consols for the poor. There is a school in the village.
