INGWORTH, which gives name to a rural deanery, is a village and parish, in the vale of the Bure, 2 miles N. of Aylsham, in Aylsham union and county court district, Norwich bankruptcy district, South Erpingham hundred and petty sessional division, Aylsham polling district of North Norfolk, and Norwich archdeaconry. It has a rateable value of £971, and had 144 inhabitants in 1881, living on 512 acres. The soil belongs to several owners. Part of the parish 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 William 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.F. Wyndham, Esq.'s representatives, and in the incumbency of the Rev. George Fish, of Erpingham. The tithes were commuted in 1839 for £170 per annum, and the glebe is 13A. 2R. The rector has also 21s. a year from the water-mill.
