Thomas Thornhill, Esq., owns nearly all the soil, and is lord of the manor, and patron of the Church, (All Saints) which is an ancient thatched fabric, with a tower and three bells. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in K.B. at 6 7s. l1d., and now enjoyed by the Rev. William Darby, M.A., who has 27 A. 6p. of glebe, and a yearly modus of 120, awarded in lieu of tithes, in 1840. Here is a brick yard, under the management of John Bollingbroke. Mr. George Matthew occupies Knettishall Hall, and farms nearly all the parish, which anciently belonged to the Harlings, and afterwards to the Lovel and Cavendish families.
