A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of South Collingham from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"COLLINGHAM (South), a village and a parish in Newark [registration] district, Notts. The village stands on the Fosse way, near Collingham [railway] station, 4¾ miles NNE of Newark; and occupies the site of the ancient Crocolana. The parish includes also Brough and Deanthorpe; and its post town is Collingham under Newark. Acres: 2,763. Real property: £5,201. Population: 863. Houses: 191. The property is much subdivided. Ancient relics have been found at Potter's Hill barrow. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Lincoln. Value: £418. Patron: the Bishop of Peterborough. The church is good; and there is a Wesleyan chapel. Charities, £18."

South Collingham was abolished in 1970 and, with the neighbouring parish of North Collingham, became the parish of Collingham. The villages of North and South Collingham have long been contiguous.
