"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." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Richard Johns]

Ingworth is also the name of the deanery, so a reference to Ingworth could mean this parish, or this area of Norfolk.
