Little Snoring has an entry in the Domesday Book of 1085. In the Great Book[clarification needed] Little Snoring is recorded by the names "Esnaringa", "Snaringa" and "Snarlinga". It was the king's land with the main landholders being William de Warenne and Peter de Valognes and his main tenant is said to be Ralph.
Within the parish of Little Snoring, at a place called Queensgate, was situated a house of the Order of St Lazarus. It is mentioned in the will of Alexander, Rector of Snoring Parva, in 1380. Nothing further about the house is known.
The village has an airfield, formerly RAF Little Snoring, part of which is still active as a private airfield, whilst the other part now belongs to a potato-producing company.
