Carlton, East

CARLTON, EAST, comprising the united parishes of St. Mary and St. Peter the Apostle, in the union of Henstead, hundred of Humbleyard, E. division of Norfolk, 5 miles (S. W. by S.) from Norwich; containing 310 inhabitants, and including 850 acres. The corporation of Norwich purchased the principal manor, and holds it upon condition of carrying yearly to the king's house, wherever he may be, provided he be in England, twenty-four pies or pasties, containing a hundred herrings, which latter the town of Yarmouth is bound to supply. The living of St. Mary's is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £4, and till lately in the patronage of the Corporation; net income, £176. St. Peter's is a discharged sinecure rectory, valued at £6, and in the gift of the Crown; net income, £188. The two churches stood within fifty yards of each other; that of St. Peter has fallen into ruins. St. Mary's is chiefly in the early English style, and has a tower surmounted by a wooden spire.
