TAKEN FROM BLOMEFIELD: At the survey, belonged to the abbey of St. Bennet in the Holme, and was appropriated to the monks table; it was given them by their founder, for they had it at the Confessor's survey, as we find it in Domesday, fol. 192.\r\nThis was afterwards granted by the abbey to the Gelhams, to be held by the service of 30s. a year, to be paid to the sacrist of that monastery; and after the Dissolution thereof, it was paid to the Bishop of Norwich.\r\nIn 1262, Thomas de Gelham settled it on John de Gelham, his son, on his marriage, reserving 10 marks per annum for life; in 1315, Christian de Gelham had it, and in Edward the Fourth's time, John de Gelham; and soon after, it belonged to John Tyllys of Norwich, who died in 1490; in 1521, Edward Tyllys, his son, died, and was buried in this church, and gave 10s. to our Lady's gild, and to Avice his wife 80 marks, and the manor-house for life; and his manors of Carlton Hall and Gelham's, he ordered to be sold to Tho. Woodhouse, Knt. and his wife to have his half part of Flynt's manor in Barford. It seems the two manors united before 1490, for then John Tyllys was lord of them both. \r\nFrom: 'Hundred of Forehoe: Carleton Forehoe', An Essay towards a Topographical History of the County of Norfolk: volume 2 (1805), pp. 402-405.
