All Saints, Wacton

WACTON, in a pleasant valley, 11 miles S by W of Norwich, and 6½ miles E N E of New Buckenham, has in its parish 267 souls, and 1044 acres of land, including a common of 273A. It was formerly two parishes, called Wacton Magna and Parva, but the church of the latter was dilapidated in 1522, when the two rectories were consolidated. The Rev Clarke Stoughton is lord of the manor, (fines arbitrary) but Wacton Hall, now a farm-house, belongs to Chas Walford, Esq, and several others have estates here. The Church (All Saints) has a round tower and three bells. The rectory, valued in the King’s Book at £7 13s 4d, is in the gift of the Rev Ellis Burroughes, and incumbency of the Rev Henry Atkinson, of Bacton. The glebe is 33A 2R 5P, and the tithes were commuted in 1841 for £323 4s per annum.
