Norfolk - Setch, or Setchey

Francis White's History, Gazetteer and Directory of Norfolk 1854, p. 668

SETCH, OR SETCHEY MAGNA, 4 miles south of Lynn, is a small churchless parish, which includes 96 inhabitants, 20 houses, and 790a. 17p. of land. In the reign of Henry III, Lord Bardolph obtained a charter for a weekly market and two annual fairs : these have long been obsolete ; but a fortnight market for fat cattle was held here on every alternate Tuesday, till about 25 years ago, when it was removed to Lynn. A Church was standing here in 1528, but no traces of it now remain. It maintains its poor separately, though it is ecclesiastically united with Runcton, and comprised in that manor. A small chapel of ease, erected in 1844 by D. Gurney, Esq., is neatly fitted up with stalls, and will accommodate 150 hearers. Here is a farm and large Inn, belonging to the Corporation of Lynn. Setch Brewery, conducted by G. Hogge and Co., is on the opposite side of the River Nar, in the parish of Wormegay. Letters received at Mr. Thos. Allday's, at 8.30 a.m., and despatched at 4.45 p.m.
