THURSFORD parish, 5 miles N.E. by E. of Fakenham, contains 346 souls, 74 houses, and 1,400 acres of land, chiefly the property of Sr Chas. Chad, Bart., the lord of the manor, who occassionally [sic] resides at Thursford Hall, an Elizabethan mansion, with bay windows, presenting a long embattled front. It was formerly the seat of the Guybons, who sold it, in 1573, to Geo. Chad, Esq. The Church, dedicated to St. Andrew, has a square tower, and is a rectory, valued in the King's book at £8, consolidated with that of Great Snoring. Here is a School, supported by the lord of the manor and the rector. There is a Fuel allotment, of 20a., and the poor have 20s. left by Mr. Curzon, who also left 10s. for a sermon.
