Brunstead St Peter

Baptisms 1813 to 1880

The tiny parish of Brunstead lies in northeastern Norfolk about a mile north of the large village of Stalham. There is not much to Brunstead (also rendered Brumstead in some documents) other than the hall which is set back from the B1159 road (Stalham to Walcott road) which passes from north to south through the parish. Most housing is in the form of scattered cottages and farms along this road and the half-circular lane which runs to the west of it across Brunstead Common. Brunstead is little more than 3 miles from Norfolk's North Sea coast, a coast that is rapidly eroding and getting closer by the decade. The area around Brunstead is dominated by agricultural land, as it would have been at the time of this transcript. Arable agriculture, together with a little wildfowling in the valley of the River Ant to the west, would have occupied most of the parishioners.

St Peter's church sits on the eastern side of the B1159 and is accessed down a tarred track, The Avenue, a village sign marks this turn on the B road. What remains untouched from St Peter's extensive 19th century restorations is from the Perpendicular period typical of a Norfolk church. The western tower and nave are probably the earliest parts surviving and they are firmly dateable to 14th or 15th centuries. The chancel is largely a rebuild from 1827 styled to suit the remainder. The whole church was extensively restored in 1867.

Unfortunately the register which covers the period of this transcript has yet t be deposited with Norfolk Record Office, as a consequence these records are drawn from the Bishop's Transcripts on Microfiche. The BTs do have gaps and several years records are missing, they are also typically poor renditions of records in poor condition so it is likely that errors may have been made. Should the original register eventually be deposited these records will be reassessed and gaps filled.
