Whites Directory of Norfolk & Norwich 1854

History, Gazetteer and Directory of Norfolk and the City & County of Norwich. Francis White & Co 1854

The plan of the work embraces a general history and description of Norfolk, and the City and County of the City of Norwich ; and contains the spirit of all that has been previously written on the subject, extracted from ancient and modern authors, and from the voluminous parliamentary reports of Public Charities, Population, &c.; together, with a variety of Agricultural, Commercial, Statistical, Biographical, and Topographical Information ; and comprehending a Survey of Antiquities, Roads, Rivers, Ports, Railroads, Public Buildings, Charities, County Courts, Pour Law Unions, and Civil and Ecclesiastical Jurisdictions. The Topography of the county commences with East Norfolk, at page 329, and contains an alphabetical arrangement of the Hundreds and Parishes in their respective Divisions : shewing the situation, extent, and population of the boroughs, towns, villages, and extra-parochial liberties; the owners of the soil, and lords of the manors: the nature and value of the church livings, with their patrons and incumbents: the places of worship, public buildings, institutions, and charities, trade and commerce: local occurrences, and objects of interest and curiosity. Each parish is followed by the addresses of the gentry and other principal residents, with a classification of trades and professions. The Directory of Norwich, in addition to a classification of trades and professions, is accompanied by an alphabetical list of persons; so that the address and occupation of any individual may instantly be referred to ; and the whole is preceded by a copious index of places, persons, and subjects, affording an easy reference to the page at which every parish and village is to be found ; thus giving to the volume all the advantage of an alphabetical gazetteer.
