Letheringsett, Norfolk Genealogy
LETHERINGSETT (St. Andrew), a parish, in the union of Erpingham, hundred of Holt, W. division of Norfolk, 1½ mile (W. by N.) from Holt. 
Letheringsett St Andrew is an Ancient parish in the Diocese of Norwich. "The parish church is dedicated to St. Andrew and has a long history, as shown by the chartulary of Binham Priory. This book, preserved in the British Museum, is in Latin and the writing is almost as clear today as it was when the monkish scribe engrossed it qute five centuries go. It contains copies of documents showing the priory’s title to the extensive properties in the neighbourhood owned by it, and in particular an “Inquirey into the first foundation of the church of Leringesete’. But there is little about the foundation."
