The Post Office Directory of 1865 says: NORTH COVE is a small village and parish, 5 miles south-west from Mutford station, a mile south of the navigable Waveney, and 2½ miles south-east from Beccles, in the hundred, union and rural deanery of Wangford, Beccles county court district, and Norwich diocese, East Suffolk. The church of St. Botolph is an ancient building, with thatched roof and a tower. The living is a rectory, with that of Willingham annexed; the tithes have been commuted for £396 per annum, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held by the Rev. Richard Gooch, M.A.; the Rev. Thomas P. Wadley, is the curate. Antiquities and Roman remains have been found in this parish, on Wade Hall Farm, where there is also the site of an ancient moated hall. North Cove Hall, the seat of William Everitt, Esq., is an ancient building, commanding an extensive view. There is a Wesleyan chapel, a neat building. The only charity is about £4, derived from the rent of parish land, and distributed once a year in coals, etc., to the poor. The Rev. Sir Charles Clarke, Bart., M.A., is lord of the manor. The population in 1861 was 200, and the area is 1,242 acres; gross rental, £1,430.
