In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Felmingham like this:

The village stands near the river Bure, and near the line of the telegraph from Norwich to Cromer, 2½ miles WSW of North Walsham railway station, and 14 N by E of Norwich; and is a straggling but pleasant place. The parish comprises 1,886 acres; and its post town is North Walsham, under Norwich. Real property, £3, 443. Pop., 434. Houses, 104. The property is much subdivided.

Patron of the v., the Bishop of Norwich; of the r., John Postle and others. The church is good. There are a Wesleyan chapel, a national school, and a charity allotment.
