INGWORTH, which gives name to the Deanery of this Hundred, is a small village and parish, in the vale of the Bure, 2 miles N. of Aylsham, containing 152 souls, and 499A. 1R. 19P. of land, belonging to several owners; but part of it is a member of Blickling manor, and the rest is in the manor of Banningham.
The Church (St. Lawrence,) appears to be of the age of Wm. Rufus, and had a round tower which fell down in 1822. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the King's Book at £5, in the patronage of W.H. Windham, Esq., and the incumbency of the Rev. Geo. Fish, of Erpingham. The tithes were commuted in 1839 for £166 per annum; and the glebe is 13A. 2R. The rector has also 21s. a year from the water-mill.
The poor have a yearly rent-charge of 3s. 4d., left by Ellen Gobart, about 1776.
