SOUTHELMHAM ST. MARGARET in 1844, 5 miles S.S.W. of Bungay, is a village and parish, containing 181 souls, and 589 acres of land, now rated at the annual value of 1008. 5s. Part of it belongs to several small proprietors, and the remainder to William. Adair, Esq., the lord of the manor, and patron of the Church, which was repaired and repewed in 1838, and is a small structure, with a tower and five bells. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in K.B. at 6 2s. 11d., and consolidated with that of Southelmham St. Peter, in the incumbency of the Rev Adolphus Holmes, M.A. The tithes of this parish have been commuted for 136, and those of St. Peter's, for 145 per annum, exclusive of the yearly payment of 2 2s. to the Dean and Chapter of Norwich, 1 8s. to William. Adair, Esq., and 10s. 6d. to Lord Berners. The Town Estate comprises a house and about 50a. of laud, let for 65 a year. It is partly freehold and partly copyhold, and has been vested in feoffees from an early period, in trust to apply the rents in discharging the fifteenths, tenths, taxes, and such other common charges of the parishioners, as the feoffees should think necessary. The income is mostly applied in the service of the church, and the remainder is added to the poor rates. A cottage, called the Town House, and a small piece of land adjoining, were appropriated at an early period for the reparation of the highways. They are let for 30s. a year, which is added to the rent of the Town Estate.
