"BITTERING MAGNA was formerly a parish, lying between Gressenhall and Beetley, to which parishes it was annexed many years ago, after the dilapidation of its CHURCH, of which no traces now remain. Like Little Bittering, it maintains its roads separately. Near Gressenhall village, are a number of scattered houses called Bittering Street." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
This parish is also called Great Bittering.

- In 1883 the parish was in the Deanery of Brisley, in the archdeaconry of Norwich.
It could have been in a different deanery or archdeaconry both before and after this date.
