Carleton Rode

All Saints, Carleton Rode

CARLTON RODE, a large scattered village, 2 miles ENE of New Buckenham, has in its parish 938 souls, and 2573 acres of land, the greater part of which belongs to Sir Robert J Buxton, Bart, (now a minor) but part of the parish is in Forncett and Tibbenham manors. In the winter of 1844, a very interesting collection of British instruments or tools was discovered here in digging a ditch across a pasture field, on the farm occupied by the Rev TP Slapp, of Old Buckenham, in whose possession they have been placed.  The Church was repaired in 1717, and has a good organ, lately given by Mrs Bevan. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King’s Book at £16, and now having a yearly rent of £922 12s 6d awarded in 1839 in lieu of tithes. Sir RJ Buxton, Bart, is patron, and the Rev FS Bevan incumbent. Here is a Baptist chapel.

Memorandum that John Moor the Parish Clerk having behave undecently in his place, and among other instances having spoken profanely concerning the Sacrament of the Eurcharist, he was by the Rector removed from his joynt office of Clerk and Sexton, and Matthew Trundle appointed and declared Parish Clerk in his room on Sunday January the 29th 1737 by the Rector.  On Munday Febr 6 1737 the Parishioners met and chose the said John Moor Sexton.  But inasmuch as both Clerk and Sexton have for him beyond the memory of man been one and the same person, upon this account the Rector did on Sunday Feb 19 1737 again declare Matthew Trundle both Clerk and Sexton.
