History

Little Snoring has an entry in the Domesday Book of 1085.[4] In the Great Book (jargon for "The Domesday Book"[citation needed]) Little Snoring is recorded by the names "Esnaringa", "Snaringa" and "Snarlinga", named after "Snare", the settlers' leader, and thus the name Little Snoring evolved over the centuries. It was the king's land with the main landholders being William de Warenne and Peter de Valognes and his main tenant is said to be Ralph.

Within the parish of Little Snoring, at a place called Queensgate, was a house of the Order of St Lazarus. It is mentioned in the will of Alexander, Rector of Snoring Parva, in 1380. Nothing further about the house is known.[5]
