STARSTON village is situated 2 miles N. by W. of Harleston, and its parish has 93 houses, 485 souls, and 2,200 acres of land, belonging chiefly to T. L. Taylor, C. Etheridge, R. C. Fowler, Esqrs., Mr. D. Coleby, and Mr. D. Feaveryer, who pay small quit rents to the Duke of Norfolk, the lord of the manor. T. L. Taylor, and C. Etheridge, Esqrs., have neat residences here. The Church, dedicated to St. Margaret, has a square tower, and five bells ; and the living is a rectory, valued in the King's book at £15, and in 1831, at £637. The Earl of Suffolk, and others, are patrons of the living, who must present a fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge. The Rev. A. M. Hopper is the incumbent. The hall, an ancient residence, was formerly moated all round ; but the moat was filled up about 60 years ago. It is now the property of R. C. Fowler, Esq., and residence of Mr. Jeremiah Wase, jun. The poor have a yearly rent of 20s. left by My. Snelling, and the interest of £70 10s.
