Norfolk contains 3,092 square miles, or 1,338,880 acres, and 731 parishes. It had 77 monastic establishments, and 42 public charities; it has 22 parishes with no churches, 74 parishes with less than 100 inhabitants, 268 parishes with no parsonage-houses, 140 parishes with parsonage-houses unfit to live in; the Poor-rates were, in 1818, 360.337Í. 14s. 64d.,; the number of Paupers is 34,523 ; the rental of the county, according to a return made to parliament in 1818, was 1,540,9521. 8». 5rf.; the population, according to a return laid before parliament in 1821, was 344,368; the number of inhabited houses in 1821 was 62,274; the number of uninhabited houses at tito same epoch, 1,269; the poor-rates bear the proportion of onefourth of the rental', the number of paupers, compared with the number of houses, is one to every two; the poorrates in 1776 were 63,1711.; the number of persons to every square mile of this county is 163; the number of acres to a person, 4; the number of acres to a house,21; the male population, in 1821, was 166,892; the families employed in agriculture were in number 36,368; the families employed in handicraft were 26,201 in number; the number of other families was 11,928; the agricultural male population, 81,336; able labourers, 40,658; the number of acres in this county to every able-bodied labourer, is 32.' It is in the Province or CanterBury, in the Diocese or Norwich, and in the Norfolk Circuit. NorFolk is a very flat county, there being

scarcely eny rising ground even, except* ing a little about Cromer, and a little in the neighbourhood of Norwich. Mr. Arthur Young, made an analysis of the land of the county of Norfolk : of light sand he found 140,000 acres; good sand 268,800; marshland clay 38,400; various loams 576,000 ; rich loam 94,720; peat 52,480. It has been for some years considered the first county in England for its agriculture ; that is to say, for its growth of corn crops, for as a grazing county, or sheep-fatting eonnty, it is far beneath many. Its principal produce is, wheat, barley, and oats ; and of barley more than of the other two. The woodlands are no-where extensive here, unless where gentlemen have planted, though, in some districts, the hedgerows are thick, and give the country the appearance of being wooded. Thé greater part of the county is open, and the fields extensive. The cattle of Norfolk are not fine, the horses are hardy and active, and well calculated for the soil, but they are not handsome; the horned cattle are chiefly brought out of Suffolk, the polled breed of which county is much esteemed; the sheep is a long, bony, homed animal, with black feet and face, with some fine wool upon it, but with a worthless carcass compared with the excellent breed now in rogue. There are no mines in this county. Manufacturing of tabinet, crapes, cambíete, bombazines, poplins, damasks, shawls, and fancy things of mohair and silk-, is carried on to a very great extent in the city of Norwich; and a considerable trade in stockings and coarse woollens is carried on at Aylsham and Thetford.
