In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Haveringland like this:

Real property, £1, 983. Pop., 131. Houses, 29. The property is all in one estate, and belongs to E. Fellowes, Esq. Haveringland Hall, the seat of Mr. Fellowes, is a recent edifice in the Corinthian style, and stands in a park finely ornamented with wood and water. A chapel was founded here, in the time of King John, by William de Gisneto; was given by him to the priory of Wymondham; and became a cell for a prior and several black canons. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Norwich. Value, £63. Patron, E. Fellowes, Esq. The church has a circular tower, and is good.
