'EFFINGHAM (St. Lawrence), a parish, in the union of Dorking, hundred of Copthorne and Effingham, W. division of Surrey, 3¾ miles (S. W. by W.) from Leatherhead; containing 581 inhabitants. The parish comprises 3100 acres, of which the north part is clay, the middle gravel, and the south chalk; there is a good deal of coppice land on the south side, chiefly oak, beech, and hazel. The village, from the discovery of numerous foundations of buildings in the contiguous fields, appears to have been formerly of much greater extent than it is at present. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £7. 18. 9., and in the patronage of the Crown: the impropriate tithes, belonging to the families of Stringer, Currie, and Malthus, have been commuted for £316, and the vicarial for £120; the glebe comprises 18 acres. The church contains several neat monuments; the east window is of stained glass, erected at the expense of Mr. Stringer.'<ref>''[[A Topographical Dictionary of England]]'' by Samuel A.
