Parish History[edit | edit source]

BURNHAM-SUTTON-CUM-BURNHAM-ULPH, a parish in Docking district, Norfolk; ¾ of a mile S of Burnham-WestgateThe present parish comprises two ancient parishes. The living of Burnham-Sutton is a rectory, united with the vicarage of Burnham-Overy, and with half of the rectories of Burnham-Norton and Burnham-Ulph, in the diocese of Norwich. [1]

Here is a mid-19th century perspective for Burnham Ulph:

All Saints' church, Burnham-Ulph, was originally a chapel of ease to the church of Burnham-Westgate St Mary's to which it was partly annexed and partly annexed to Burnham Sutton (St Albert) which had by 1848 fallen into ruin.[2] By 1870, it became a parish according to the topographer, John M. Wilson and was called "Burnham-Sutton cum Burnham-Ulph" which was because it was united to Burnham-Sutton. However, it also became "united with the vicarage of Burnham-Overy (which see), and a half rectory with Burnham-Norton (which see).[3]

Burnham Ulph All Saints, a parish (amalgamated with Burnham Sutton) is one of a group of villages and hamlets known collectively as "The Burnhams" and Burnham Ulph today actually forms the eastern part of what is now the town of Burnham Market. All Saints' church is situated amidst houses and cottages. The church has no tower and its bellcote is believed to date from the 12th century. The building was repaired by using some of the materials of the demolished St Ethelbert's church which is situated a short distance further to the south. There has been an extensive Victorian renovation but some of the church's original features such as the medieval font have survived.

Burnham Market is a village and civil parish near the north coast of Norfolk, England. Burnham Market is one of the Burnhams, a group of adjacent villages in North Norfolk. It is the result of the merger of three of the original Burnham villages, namely Burnham Sutton, Burnham Ulph and Burnham Westgate.

Burnham Market lies approximately 1 mile (2 km) inland, some 5 miles (8 km) west of Wells-next-the-Sea, 12 miles (19 km) east of Hunstanton and 10 miles (16 km) north of Fakenham. The smaller villages of Burnham Deepdale and Burnham Norton are within 2 miles (3 km) to the west and north of Burnham Market, whilst Burnham Overy and Burnham Thorpe are a similar distance to the east. North Creake is some 4 miles (6 km) to the south. The larger town of King's Lynn is 20 miles (30 km) to the south-west, whilst the city of Norwich is 30 miles (50 km) to the south-east. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of King's Lynn and West Norfolk.
