Ancient History

Carbrooke village located in the Wayland Hundred of Norfolk, on the tiny River Wissey, the name and layout probably Saxon, or perhaps even Roman, as both Roman and Saxon remains have been found in the area, as well as flint axes and arrow heads from previous times. The first census carried out in Britain was the Domesday Survey of 1085, to establish who owned which and how much land, Carbrooke is mentioned as Cherebroc.
