"LITTLETON, a parish in the hundred of Spelthorne, county Middlesex, 3 miles S.E. of Staines, and 2 N.E. of Chertsey, its post town. It is situated on the N. bank of the Thames, within a short distance of Chertsey Bridge. The surface is flat, and the lands bordering on the river are subject to partial inundation. The land is divided between arable and pasture, a considerable portion of which has only recently been enclosed. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of London, value £320, chiefly arising from land. The church, dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene, is an ancient structure. It contains a brass of the 16th century, and several monuments. The parochial charities produce about £21 per annum, nearly half of which is the endowment of Harwood's school. Littleton Manor House, which once belonged to Cardinal Wolsey, is the residence of General Wood, who is lord of the manor and owner of the parish."
