BARNINGHAM LITTLE, a parish and village 6 miles N.W. by W. of Aylsham, has 56 houses, 264 souls, 1,225 acres of land, chiefly belonging to the Earl of Orford, and Messrs. Page and Hardy. The former is lord of the manor, which was anciently held by the Berningham family, who obtained a charter for a market and fair here, in the reign of Edward I. The enclosure act passed in 1821. The Church, dedicated to St. Andrew, has a square tower, and the living is a rectory valued in the King's book at £5 15s. 2½d., in the patronage of the Earl of Orford, and incumbency of the Rev. John Custance Leake, who has £260 per annum, awarded in 1839, in lieu of tithes.
