At Old Erringham the remains of a chapel of ease suggest that it was built in the 11th century. There are no certain documentary references to the chapel; (fn. 78) the chapels belonging to Old Shoreham church c. 1195 (fn. 79) may have included Old Erringham or New Shoreham church, or the supposed former chapel next to Court Farm in Old Shoreham in 1616. (fn. 80) The chapel at Old Erringham is likely to have gone out of use either when the hamlet was depopulated in the later Middle Ages or at the Reformation. Part of Old Shoreham parish went to form the new parish assigned to St. Giles's church, built in 1906 in Kingston. (fn. 81)
