"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."

These figures are from the population tables which were produced after the 10-yearly national censuses. The "Families" heading includes families and single occupiers.
There may be more people living in detached parts of the parish (if there were any) and, if so, the number may or may not be included in the figures above. It is quite difficult to be sure from the population tables.
