Background information on Bramerton Lodge, Bramerton, Norfolk, England, - BRAMERTON, a small village and parish, 4½ miles S.E. by E. of Norwich, has 229 inhabitants, and 728A. 3R. 29P. of land, belonging to J.J. Blake, Esq., Mrs. Miller, J.N. Waite, Esq., and several other proprietors. The Hall, which was the seat of the Corys from 1400 to the middle of the last century, is now the property of J.J. Blake, Esq., but is occupied by Mrs. Sophia Blake. Hill House, the seat and property of Wm. Wilde, Esq., is a pretty building in the Tudor style, situated on an eminence above the river Yare, and commanding an extensive view.

The Church (St. Peter) was rebuilt in 1462, and is now in the decorated style. It comprises nave, chancel, north transept, south porch, and square tower with one bell. The north window of the chancel contains some modern stained glass; and here is a mural tablet in memory of the late John Blake, Esq., whose widow and son built the transept in 1860, at a cost of £200. An organ was bought by subscription in 1861, at a cost of £60.

The discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £6, and now at £258 a year, is in the patronage of Robt. Fellowes, Esq., and in the incumbency of the Rev. Edmund Blake, M.A., who has a handsome brick residence, built in 1839, at a cost of £1400. Here are about 22 acres of glebe.

The National School, a neat brick building, which was erected in 1853, by the late J. Blake, Esq., is attended by about 50 children.

The town land, 5A. 2R. 20P., is let for £6, which is distributed in coals. This parish has £5 every fifth year, for apprentice fees, and 20s. yearly for the poor, from Cock's Charity. (See Hillington.) In 1711, the Rev. Wm. Berney left £100 for schooling poor children, but the interest has not been paid since the death of Sir John Berney.
