"BARNINGHAM, (LITTLE) 6 miles N.W. by N. of Aylsham, has in its parish 229 souls, and 1225A. of land, mostly belonging to the Earl of Orford, and Messrs. Page and Leake. The former is lord of the manor, which was anciently held by a family of its own name, who obtained a charter for a market and fair here, in the reign of Edward I. In 1312, Sir Henry Seagrave and 26 others came to the manor house, and pricked and cut the mother of Wm. de Berningham, to force her to tell them of her money and jewels, for which they were indicted, but produced the king's pardon. The Church (St. Andrew,) has a square tower, and the living is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £5.15s.2½d., and now having £260 per annum, awarded in 1839 in lieu of tithes. Messrs. G.T. and G.L. Graver, and G.B. Knight, are patrons, and the Rev. John Custance Leake is incumbent."
