Thelnetham Public Houses

THELNETHAM in 1844, is a scattered village on the south side of the vale, and near the source of the Little Ouse river, 3 miles N.W. of Botesdale, and 5 1/2 miles S. by W. of Kenninghall, has in its parish 561 souls, and 1,780 acres of strong loamy land. The manor of Thelnetham was anciently held by a family of its own name, and now belongs to John Thruston, Esq., but part of the soil is the property of Thomas Thornhill, Esq., Mrs. F. Mallows, and the Nunn, Button, and other families. Sir E. Kerrison is lord of the manor called Eye-Thelnetham. The Church (St. Nicholas) is a neat fabric, with a tower and five bells. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in K.B. at 16 18s. 4d., and in 1835 at 508. The Rev. Samuel Colby, of Norfolk, is patron and incumbent, and the Rev. E. H. Sawbridge is the curate, and has purchased the next presentation. The Town Estate, 28a. 1r. 34p., was awarded on an enclosure in 1821, in lieu of
other lands, which had been held from an early period, in trust, for
the use of the church and poor. It is now let for about 32 a year,
and the surplus of the rent, after paying the churchwarden's expenses,
is carried to the poor rates. A benefaction of 10 given to the poor
of this parish, was laid out in the purchase of 1a. 2r 31p. of land,
in Rattlesden, now let for 1 12s. a year. The Poor's Allotment,
awarded at the enclosure, comprises 40a., on which the poor get turf,
&c, for fuel,
