MICHAEL, or Little Ormesby, is a small village and parish, lying west of Great Ormesby, and six miles N.N.W. of Yarmouth, containing 278 inhabitants, and 900 acres of land, of which 400 acres were enclosed in 1842, and more than 100 acres are in the extensive, but shallow lake, called Ormesby Broad. The principal freeholders are Sir E.H.K. Lacon, and Rd. Glasspoole, Esq., who have handsome mansions here;  . . . The Church is a small edifice, with several monuments of the Upcher and Manning families.

Caldicot, Esq., has an estate here." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
