DEOPHAM, or Deepham parish, 2½ miles S.E. of Hingham, includes the small village of Deopham Green, many scattered houses, 525 souls, and 1626 acres of land, belonging to a number of proprietors, and lying in two manors, of which Lord Wodehouse and the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury are lords. The latter are appropriators of the rectory and patrons of the vicarage, valued in K.B. at £5. 7s. 11d., and in 1831 at £204, being augmented from 1716 to '18, with £70, given by them ; £130, given by the Rev. Henry Rix, and £200 of Q.A.B., all laid out in land at Shipdham. The Rev. Richard Adams is the incumbent, and Misses Ames, of Bath, are lessees of the rectory. The Church (St. Andrew,) is a large edifice, with a square tower, half a mile from the village. Here is a fine elm, 90 feet high; and a large lime tree of the same height, was cut down in the parish, in 1705, the trunk of which was from 8½ to 16 Yards in girth. The Primi­tive Methodists have two small chapels here. In 1726, the Rev. Henry Rix left £60 for schooling poor children, &c., and it was laid out in the purchase of 4A. 1R. 32P. of land, now let for £7, out of which 32s. is paid for teaching four poor children, 10s. for a sermon, 1s. to the clerk, and the rest is distributed in bread among the poor parishioners. The Charter Acre was exchanged at the enclosure for IA. 38P., let for 30s., of which 11s. is paid annually to the sheriff for renewing the “town charter," and the residue is carried to the church rates. The Fuel Allotment, awarded at the enclosure in 1814, consists of 14A. 2R. 13P., let for about £23 a year, which is distributed in coals and bread.
