Thorpe (next Haddiscoe)

St Matthias, Thorpe

THORPE-NEXT-HADDISCOE, 5 miles E of Loddon and 10 miles SW of Yarmouth, has in its parish 110 souls, and about 900 acres of land, mostly in the low marshes of the vale of the Waveney, and in the manors of Haddiscoe, Overhall, Netherhall, etc. Sir E. Bacon, Col Onslow, and the Executors of GJ Grimmer, own most of the soil. The CHURCH (St Matthias,) is a small edifice with a round tower. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King’s Book at £3 6s 8d, and in 1831 at £175, is in the gift of the Crown, and incumbency of the Rev W Barrow. The tithes were commuted in 1839, for £152 12s 1d per annum. Here is a small Wesleyan Chapel. The Town Land was exchanged at the enclosure in 1814, for a cottage and 2A 2R 19P, let for £6 10s, which is applied with the church rates.
