I was pleased to learn of your interest in common rights in north Norfolk. I think you'll find the following book useful: Christopher P. Rodgers, Eleanor A Straughton, Angus J L Winchester and Margherita Pieraccini, Contested Common Land: environmental governance past and present (Earthscan, 2011), ISBN 978-1-84971-094-7. Chapter 9 is a case study of the commons at Brancaster and Thornham.
I am also interested in Commons and allotments on common land. On the 1867 tithes maps I have traced an allotment on a land which was a common but not longer appears as such on maps. Did such allotments disappear some point last century or do allotment exist in perpetuity if you have them?
