In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Euston like this:

EUSTON, a parish in the district of Thetford and county of Suffolk; at the verge of the county, on the L. Ouse river, 4½ miles SE by S of Thetford r. station. It includes the hamlet of Little Fakenham, and has a post office under Thetford. Acres, with Rymer, 3, 780. Real property, £2, 815. ...


Pop., 225. Houses, 43. The property is all in one estate. The manor belonged to the Eustons; passed to the Pattishalls and to Benet, Earl of Arlington; went, by marriage, to the first Duke of Grafton; and gives to the Dukes of Grafton the title of Earl. Euston Hall is a seat of the Duke of Grafton; is constructed of red brick; and stands amid charming scenery. A banqueting-house, called the Temple, crowns an eminence in the park; was erected by Kent; and is in the Grecian style. The living is a rectory, united with the rectories of Barnham and Little Fakenham, in the diocese of Ely. Value, £645.* Patron, the Duke of Grafton. The church has a square tower; contains monuments of the Grafton family, and four brasses; and is good.
