Ellingham Saint Mary Church, near Bungay, square west tower, 5 bells, dated from 1592 to 1642, nave with south aisle, chancel and south porch. The style is a mixture of all three periods of Gothic. On the north wall is a curious figure of the head of a bishop and his pastoral staff. A fine oil painting was presented to the church by a former owner of the Hall. It represents the Angel helping Saint Peter to escape from Prison. There are two other Ellinghams in Norfolk, a bit of a strange name, Great and Little, over in the Attleborough area. Ellingham is a habitational name from the places named Ellingham located in Hampshire, Norfolk and Northumberland. However, the place name Ellingham is derived from the Old English personal name "Ella" + inga, or ing + "ham" which literally means "homestead of the family or followers of a man called Ella."
Ellingham Saint Mary Church, the lower stage of the tower is 14th century and has the peculiarity of being slightly battering. Modern roofs and benches, mostly box pews. 14th century font with engaged columns to shaft, heads at corona and traceried bowl. Stuart table and Arms of George I dated 1721. The property was locked, and no contact details. Ancestor links to Cockerill.
