PALLING, 4 miles E. by N. of Stalham, and 18 miles N.E. of Norwich, is a small fishing village, and parish, on the sea coast, comprising 467 souls, 99 houses, and 830 acres of land, mostly the property of the Hon. John Ashley, who is also the lord of the manor, impropriator of the great tithes, and patron of the Church, which is dedicated to St. Margaret. The living is a vicarage, valued in the King's book at £2 6s. 8d. and augmented with £800 Queen Anne's bounty, vested in 20a. 3r. 27p. of land, at Hickling. It is consolidated with Waxham rectory, and enjoyed by the Rev. H. Ready, M.A. The rectorial tithes are commuted for £162 18s., and the vicarial for £93 8s. per annum. Here is a National school supported by subscriptions. The Poor's Allotment, 14a., awarded at the enclosure, in 1812, is let for £18. In 1853, a life-boat was stationed here by the Norfolk Shipwreck Association, and here is a Coast Guard station, the chief officer of which is Lieut. Harris.
