Parish History

FELMINGHAM (St. Andrew), a parish, in the Tunstead and Happing incorporation, hundred of Tunstead, E. division of Norfolk, 2½ miles (W. S. W.) from North Walsham. [1]

Felmingham St Andrew is an Ancient Parish in the Waxham deanery of the Diocese of Norwich.
The old tower of the church has been joined by a much later red brick rebuild of the main body of the church.

At the time of the Peasant’s Revolt of 1381 a resident of Felmingham by the name of Geoffrey Litster, who was a dyer by occupation, found his livelihood threatened. He led a large group of rebels and attempted to seize Norwich. The Bishop of Norwich and his force met the rebels on a heath just to the south of North Walsham. The Battle of North Walsham resulted in the defeat and capture of the rebels. Litster as a result of his actions was hanged, drawn and quartered, with each quarter being displayed at Norwich, Great Yarmouth, King’s Lynn and at his house at Felmingham, as a deterrent to further rebel uprisings.
