"SANDRINGHAM, a small village and parish, containing only 53 inhabitants, and 1,110 acres of land, 7½ [miles] N.N.E. of Lynn, has its name from its deep sandy soil, of which more than 200A. are on the extensive heath stretching hence to Wolverton. The Hon. Charles Spencer Cowper is the sole proprietor, and resides in Sandringham Hall, a large cemented brick mansion, in a park of 300A., . . . He is also patron of the CHURCH, a small ancient fabric, standing on an eminence, and dedicated to St. Mary Magdalen. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £5 6s. 8d., is consolidated with Babingley, and is now enjoyed by the Rev. Geo. Browne Moxon, B.A., and valued at £171 per annum, with 25A. of glebe. The other residents are, Wm. Durrant, farmer; and Chas. Kent, parish-clerk. " [William White History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
