Norfolk: West Poringland


William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk 1845

PORINGLAND, (LITTLE) or West Poringland is a churchless parish, adjoining East Poringland, with which it is united for the support of the poor, but repairs its roads separately. It has only 57 souls, and 622A. of land, mostly belonging to the Rev. John Holmes, the lord of the manor. The Church (St. Michael,) was dilapidated before the year 1540, and its curacy consolidated with the rectory of Howe.

The farmers are Abm. Aldridge, Chas. Hubbard, Jas. Shortins, and Thos. Thurtell.
