    Norton Public Houses

    NORTON in 1844, is a large and well built village, pleasantly situated on the eastern declivity of a fertile valley, 3 miles S. S. E. of Ixworth, and 7 miles E. N .E. of Bury St. Edmund's, has in its parish 879 souls, 2,449a. 2r. 3p. of land, lying in the manors of Norton Hall and Little Haugh. R. Woodward, Esq. is lord of the former, and Rt. Braddock, Esq. of the latter; but a great part of the soil belongs to the Wilson, Long, Day, Hustler, Sparke, Cocksedge, Plummer, Casborne, Smith, and a few other families. Norton Hall is occupied by a farmer, and Little Haugh Hall, by Peter Huddleston, Esq. The latter was a seat of the Milesons, from whom it descended to Mileson Edgar, Esq., who sold it to Alderman Macro, of Bury, from whose family it passed to the Braddocks. Henry VIII. was induced by a credulous kind of avarice, to dig for gold in this parish, but was disappointed in his search. The Church (St. Andrew) is a neat structure with a tower and two bells. The rectory, valued in K. B. at 14 3s. 9d., and in 1835 at 458, has now a yearly modus of 611, awarded in 1839, in lieu of tithes. It is in the patronage of St. Peter's College, Cambridge, and incumbency of the Rev. Aldersey Dicken, D. D., who has a neat Rectory House. Here is a Wesleyan, and also a Baptist Chapel; the latter built in 1843, by Mr. S. Hustler, at the cost of 700, with a house for the minister. A National School was built here in 1839, and has about 60 scholars. At the Dog Inn is a Lodge of Odd Fellows, belonging to the Manchester Union. The Poor's Estate comprises a cottage, occupied rent-free, by poor widows; and 13a. 3r. 7p. of land, let for 26 a year, and allotted at the enclosure, in lieu of other land, which had been purchased with various benefactions, in trust, to pay 12s. to the minister, for a sermon on September 19th, and 1s. to the parish clerk, on the same day; and to distribute the remainder of the rents among the poor. In 1650, John Fiske, pursuant to the will of his father, settled 2 1/2a. of land in Ixworth, in trust, that the rents thereof should be distributed in weekly doles of bread, among the poor of Norton. This land is now worth about 5 per annum. In 1773, William Stanniforth, in fulfilment of the charitable intention of his father-in-law, the Rev. Cox Maers, D.D., gave 600 three per cent. Consols, in trust, to provide yearly, 12 poor men with coats, and 12 poor women with stuff gowns and petticoats. The dividends were not received from 1796 to 1820, and in the latter year, the arrears, and the original stock were laid out in the purchase of 724 8s. 8d. three per cent. Reduced Annuities.
