Foreword by the author
It was whilst recovering from an operation in this year of 1969 that I found time to write this small booklet about the beloved parish of mine, Starston. To obtain some information regarding the past, I have delved into several old books of reference at the Norfolk County Branch Library at Harleston, and much of the other details come from memories going back some 50 years. I thought that if I could make this presentable to the public, it might be held in posterity. As far as I know no one in recent years has attempted to print anything of the history and happenings of Starston.
