Sandford Orcas is a village and parish in north west Dorset, England, three miles north of Sherborne.
The ‘Orcas’ descends from the Norman Orescuilz family, who came to own the village manor in the century after the Battle of Hastings. The village was known as Sanford in 1086 (Domesday Book), Sandford in 1243, Sandford Horscoys in 1372, and Samford Orescoys in 1427. The present manor house goes back five hundred years to the Tudors and although built at the time Christopher Columbus was sailing west on his famous expedition, it has changed little since
