Witchingham Early Origins



The surname Witchingham was first found in Norfolk at Wychingham, more commonly known as Wichingham. Today Great Witchingham is a village and civil parish about 11 miles (18 km) north-west of Norwich, in the union of St. Faith, hundred of Eynsford. Witchingham Hall, built in the 16th century, was demolished in the 1980s. The parish church of St Mary notes that John Britton, Bishop of Hereford, who died in 1275, and Sir William Wychinghara, judge of the common pleas in 1363, were natives of the parish.
