Lammas (St. Andrew)

LAMMAS (St. Andrew), a parish, in the union of Aylsham, hundred of South Erpingham, E. division of Norfolk, 3 miles (N. W. by N.) from Coltishall; containing, with the merged parish of Little Hautbois, 299 inhabitants. These united parishes comprise by estimation 829 acres, of which 647 are arable, 150 pasture, and the remainder woodland. The village and church are picturesquely situated on the east bank of the navigable river Bure, which bounds the parish on the north and west. The living is a discharged rectory, with that of Little Hautbois united, in the gift of the Rev. W. H. Marsh: the tithes have been commuted for £240, and the glebe consists of 36 acres. The church is an ancient structure, in the early and later English styles, with a square embattled tower; the font is handsomely sculptured, and in the chancel are neat monuments to the Marsh and Chandler families. There is a place of worship for the Society of Friends. The church of Little Hautbois has been destroyed many years.
