Oxnead  Norfolk


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

OXNEAD, a parish in Aylsham district, Norfolk; on the river Bure, 3¼ miles S E of Aylsham, and 10½ N by E of Norwich r. station. Post-town, Hevingham, under Norwich. Acres, 644. Real property, £1, 794. Pop., 57 Houses, 14. The property belongs to Sir Henry J. Stracey, Bart. ...

Oxnead Hall was the seat of Sir W-Paston; went by sale, first to Lord Anson, then to Sir Edward Stracey, Bart.; and is now partly demolished, and partly a farm-house. The living is a rectory, annexed to the vicarage of Buxton, in the diocese of Norwich. The church is ancient, was recently restored, and stands secluded among trees.
