HONING, 4 miles S.E. of North Walsham, is a parish and village, on the east side of the canal, containing 73 houses, 348 souls, and 1,149a. 2r. 6p. of enclosed land, and about 300a. in wood, heath, and common. Edwd. Geo. Cubitt, Esq., is the principal land owner and lord of the manor, and resides at Honing hall, a handsome modern mansion of brick, with a well-wooded lawn. The Church, dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, was rebuilt in 1796, except the tower. The vicarage, valued in the King's book at £4 13s. 4d., is consolidated with that of Dilham. There are 17a. of glebe ; and the tithes were commuted in 1842 for the yearly rent of £145 to the vicar, and £283 to the Bishop of Norwich, the appropriator. The poor have the interest of £46 arising from the sale of a house, left by John Gibbs. Rents amounting to £37 17s. a year from 3a. 2r. 26p. of land, left by Thos. Husband, in 1613, and 18a. 3r. left by John Baxter, are disposed of as follow:—£16 for schooling poor children, and the residue is carried to the account of the churchwardens.
