SEETHING, 9½ miles S.E. of Norwich, is a well built village, and parish, with 451 souls, 100 houses, and 1,639a. 0r. 39p. of land, chiefly the property of G. S. Kett, Esq., of Brooke. Seething Hall, the residence of Mr. John Crickmore, is a neat mansion, with a beautiful lawn, descending to a picturesque valley, in which a rivulet is swelled into lakes, and decoys, finely margined with wood. The Church, dedicated to St. Margaret, has a round tower, and the living is a perpetual curacy, valued in 1831, at £143, in the incumbency of the Rev. J. T. Burt, M.A. The trustees of the Great Hospital, Norwich, are the patrons, and also impropriators of the great tithes, commuted for £383. A National School was established in 1813. At the enclosure, in 1814, 2a. 1r. 18p. were awarded as a Fuel Allotment, and the Poor's land was exchanged for 3a. 0r. 26p. The poor have also £3 yearly, left by Thos. Brooke, in 1674; £1 10s. left by Thos. Spooner, in 1630, and 20s. left by John Kerrison, in 1753.
