The Inclosure Commissioner’s Particulars and Valuation for Great Ellingham of 1800, reveal that a James Long occupied a cottage and garden, an additional garden and an allotment upon Town Green.
The associated Statement of Claims states that James Long claimed one cottage and one acre of land (all freehold) occupied by himself. In addition, he claimed rights of common, of pasture for cattle on common and waste lands in the village and a right for the cutting and taking of firing, and sand and clay for repairs.
An 18th century map held at the Norfolk Records Office show that a James Long owned land at the junction of Long Street with what was then known as Pennell Lane (today, we know it as Penhill Road). The property being immediately on the left hand side (from the junction towards Rocklands).
The Great Ellingham Parish Registers reveal a baptism for a James Long son of James and Mary Long on March 29th, 1761. The Parish Registers also show a burial for a James Long (married man) on December 26th, 1810. However without any further information, I cannot be certain whether one or both of these entries relate to the James Long living a the junction of Long Street and Pennell Road in the early 1800s but, of course, there is a good chance that they do.
