Norfolk - Dilham

Francis White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory, of Norfolk 1854, p. 542-543

[Complete entry. Transcription Copyright © the late A.J. Carter, May 2002]

DILHAM, 5 miles S.S.E. of North Walsham, is a pleasant village and parish, comprising 504 souls, 102 houses, and 1,563 acres of land, mostly the property of W. H. Windham, Esq., and S. T. Taylor, Esq. ; the former is lord of the manor, and the fines are arbitrary. Dilham Staith, on the east side of the parish, is a hamlet, on the navigation, partly in Smallburgh parish, and near it is Dilham Mill, with a dam of 15a. formed about 25 years ago. The Church, dedicated to St. Nicholas, was rebuilt about 28 years ago of brick, except the round flint tower, which was re-constructed of the same materials. The vicarage, valued in the King's book at £5 7s. 4d., and in 1831, at £272, with that of Honing annexed to it, is in the gift of the Bishop of Norwich, and incumbency of the Rev. Hicks Deacle, of Coltishall. The rectorial tithes of both parishes belong to Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. The tithes of Dilham were commuted in 1838, for £315 9s. 3d. per annum to the appropriators, and £163 6s. 7d. to the vicar. Here is a school, attended by about 40 children, and supported by subscriptions.
