NOTE: There is also a much larger place named Billingford in the north of Norfolk in Mitford and Launditch Rural District between 1894 and 1974.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Billingford (near Scole) from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "BILLINGFORD, or Pirleston, a parish in Depwade [registration] district, Norfolk; on the river Waveney, 1 mile E of Scole, and 2 SE of Diss [railway] station. Post Town: Scole. Acres: 1,820. Real property: £1,589. Population: 199. Houses: 46. The property is not much divided. The manor belonged to Sir S. Burley, the Black Prince's favourite, executed in 1388. The living is a rectory, united with the rectory of Little Thorpe, in the diocese of Norwich. Value: £264. Patron: G. Wilson, Esq. The church is good."
In 1935 Billingford was absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Scole.
