Terrington St Clement History Group

Terrington Saint Clement History Group was established in 1987 when the vicar. the Rev. John Corfield, having had so many requests for historical information, suggested that we form a History Group with the view to writing a history of the village.  We wrote our first book in 1993 “Terrington St Clement-  A Marshland Village” with photographs from our chairman’s collection.  Four more books followed in 1994, 1996, 2001, 2005.  Our researches for the books have resulted in a quite an extensive archive of photographs relating to the village and the area being created.  The publishing of the books has resulted in many enquiries from people seeking information about their ancestors from the village and other historical facts.

The Group decided in 2006 that our next project would be to produce a DVD on the village which is due to be launched on 16th November 2008.

Terrington St.Clement,
Norfolk, England

Terrington Saint Clement stands at the base of the Wash in the county of Norfolk with a village boundary coinciding with the Norfolk and Lincolnshire borders. The population in 1881 was 1,932 and in 2008 over 4,000. The parish covers an area of 17 square miles nearly 11,000 acres (4450 hectares). Much of the farm land is of alluvial silt and clay which has been reclaimed from the sea amounting to approximately half of the total parish area. The village has existed here from at least Saxon times, the most likely early settlement was sited in the Pope’s Lane area, the inhabitants deriving a living from farming, fishing, wildfowling and salt making.
