NEWTON, BY CASTLEACRE, is a small village near the summit of an acclivity overlooking Castleacre, 4 miles N. by E. of Swaffham; its parish containing 72 inhabitants, 15 houses, and 1,005 acres of land, belonging to Andrew Fountaine, Esq., and the late E. W. Martin, Esq., the former of whom is lord of the manor. The CHURCH, dedicated to All Saints, has a low square tower and two bells, and is supposed to have been built about the time of Edward the Confessor. The vicarage, valued in the King's book at £2 15s., and, in 1831 at £103, was augmented with £200 Queen Anne's Bounty in 1810, and is in the gift of the Bishop of Norwich, and incumbency of the Rev. J. H. Bloom, of Castleacre. The Bishop is impropriator of the great tithes. The Poor's land is 20a., and they have 16s. a year left by Wm. Allee, in 1655.
