"RINGLAND, on the west bank of the Wensum, 7 miles N.W. of Norwich, has in its parish 386 souls, and 1,202A. 2R. 38P. of land, mostly the property of T.T. Berney, Esq., and several smaller owners, but Lord Stafford is lord of the manor, which is chiefly copyhold, subject to arbitrary fines; and was anciently held by the Le Neve family. The Church, (St. Peter,) is a handsome structure, with a tower and five bells. It has a richly carved antique font. The vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £3. 6s., was augmented in 1780, with £200 of Queen Anne's Bounty, which was laid out in 10A. of land. It has also, 12A. 1R. 21P. of glebe, and the vicarial tithes were commuted, in 1840, for £105 per annum. The Bishop of Ely is patron, and the Rev. Richard Brickdale incumbent. The Methodists have a small chapel here, built in 1832. " [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Pat Newby]
