The name "Stambridge" means "Stone bridge". The only bridge in the parish is now brick-built over the small stream that rises in Canewdon, flows under the road just south of the Royal Oak, and into the Roach near "Waldens". The village itself is called Great Stambridge.
Stambridge Parish formerly consisted of two parishes, Great Much, or Magna and Little or Parva. The centre of population in Great Stambridge has moved from around the church to the Royal Oak Inn area.
The combined parish consists of approximately three square miles. The boundaries are, in the east, Biggins Farm (Paglesham Road); in the west Little Stambridge Hall; the south the River Roach ; and in a line crossing Stambridge Road at "Richmonds" and number 159 Stambridge Road.
