Real property, £1,783. Pop., 128. Houses, 23. The property is divided among a few. The manor, with Narford Hall, belongs to the Fountaine family. ...
The Hall was built by Sir Andrew Fountaine, the antiquary, and the friend of Pope; is a handsome edifice, in well-wooded grounds, with a small lake; and contains a fine collection of paintings and articles of vertu. A considerable village once existed in the parish, and was a market-town; but hascompletely disappeared. Roman coins have been found. The living is a vicarage, annexed to the rectory of Narborough, in the diocese of Norwich. The church is anold building, of different dates; and has a tower.
