Note spelling as Southborough.
Village name found as Southbergh to 1896
but Southburgh in 1900 and onwards.

In a court case held at East Dereham on Friday 21st may 1859, the licensee name was reported to be William Sayer and the location given as Southborough.
The dispute was if a half sovereign or a sixpence had been given by William Green to the servant of the licensee, to pay for beer and tobacco. Bricklayer Green had offered a coin to pay for 2 pints of beer and for some tobacco. The serving girl had given the coin to Mrs Sayer who assumed it was for a single pint of beer and since beer cost 2d a pint she returned 4d change. Green then said that he had given a half sovereign to pay for two pints of beer (4d) and  for tobacco (1½d) and expected more change.
Mrs Sayer could not find a half sovereign in her possession and a witness claimed to hear Green later say that he had he had made a mistake.
The Judge voiced his opinion that it was Green who was trying to `do' the publican and the verdict was, that it was a sixpence.
