"HONING, a small village and parish, on the east side of the canal, nearly 4 miles S.E. of North Walsham, has 344 inhabitants, 1024A. of enclosed land, and about 300A. of wood, heath, and common. The principal owner and lord of the manor, is Edward Geo. Cubitt, Esq., of Honing Hall, a large modern mansion of brick, with a richly-wooded lawn. The CHURCH (St. Peter and St. Paul,) was re-built in 1796, except the tower. The vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £4. 13s. 4d., is consolidated with that of Dilham. The glebe here is 17A., and the tithes were commuted in 1842, for the yearly rent of £145 to the vicar, and £283 to the Bishop of Ely, the appropriator."

- In 1883 the parish was in the Deanery of Waxham, in the archdeaconry of Norfolk.
It could have been in a different deanery or archdeaconry both before and after this date.
- The parish church is dedicated to St Peter and St Paul.
For the civil registration of births, marriages and deaths between 1837 and 1869 (and for the censuses in 1851 and 1861), Honing was in Tunstead and Happing Registration District.
This district was renamed on 1st January 1870 and, from then until 1930, Honing was in Smallburgh Registration District for civil registration and for the censuses of 1871 to 1901.
