NOTE: Although the Family History Library Catalog equates North Barningham with Barningham Norwood, A Vision of Britain through Time provides separate quotes from Wilson's Gazetteer for each place. Wikipedia only has an article on North Barningham where there is no mention of Barningham Norwood. A study of the map of Norfolk of 1917 provided by A Vision of Britain through Time leads the writer to believe that they are one and the same place. Barningham-Town (sometimes called Barningham-Winter) is directly south of Barningham-Norwood.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Barningham Norwood from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "BARNINGHAM-NORWOOD, a parish in Erpingham [registration] district, Norfolk; 4½ miles ESE of Holt, and 16 ENE of Ryburgh [railway] station. Post Town: Holt, under Thetford. Acres: 834. Real property: £1,065. Population: 30. Houses: 8. The property is divided among a few. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Norwich. Value: £156. Patron: Trustees of late W. H. Wyndham, Esq. The church has an ancient brass, and is tolerable."
A Vision of Britain through Time also states that the parish (which had an extremely small population) was absorbed into the neighbouring Gresham parish in 1935.
