"WELLINGHAM, a small village and parish, 6 miles S.S.W. of Fakenham, has 193 souls, and 1047 acres of land, mostly belonging to the Earl of Leicester, and partly to Mr. B. Norton. The Earl is lord of the manor, and patron of the Church (St. Andrew,) which is a vicarage, consolidated with Tittleshall-cum-Godwick, and valued in the King's Book at ￡5. 8s. 6d. The Fuel Allotment, awarded in 1809, is 37A. 20P., of which 10A. is let for ￡15. 15s., and the poor cut turf on the remainder."
