    SOUTHELMHAM ST. CROSS, or ST. GEORGE, alias SANCROFT in 1844, is a pleasant scattered village, on an acclivity on the south side of the vale of the Waveney, 5 miles S.W. by S. of Bungay, and 4 miles E. of Harleston. Its parish contains 258 souls, and 1300a. 2r. 7p of land. William Adair, Esq is lord of the manor, and owner of most of the soil. The manor of all the Southelmhams was formerly held by the Bishops of Norwich, and the ancient family of Sancroft had an estate here of their own name. The Church is a small ancient structure, with a tower and four bells, and was repaired and repewed in 1841, when a new gallery was erected, and 107 additional sittings provided, and appropriated to the free use of the poor. The organ was presented in the same year, by Mrs. Mary Chaston. The rectory, valued in K.B. at 10, is consolidated with that of Homersfield. The tithes of the two parishes have been commuted for 363 10s. per annum, and the incumbent has here 25a. of glebe, and a good Rectory House, built in 1834, at the cost of about 1000.
