A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Inkberrow from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"INKBERROW, a village and a parish in the [registration] district of Alcester and county of Worcester. The village stands near the boundary with Warwick[shire], 5½ miles W of Alcester railway station, and 7 SSW of Redditch; and has a post office under Bromsgrove. The parish contains also a place called Cokehill. Acres: 6,791. Real property: £14,313; of which £100 are in quarries. Population in 1851: 1,711; in 1861: 1,573. Houses: 365. The property is much subdivided. The manor belongs to the Earl of Abergavenny. The land is hilly. A nunnery anciently stood at Cokehill; is said, by some authorities, to have been founded by Gervase of Canterbury, in the time of Richard I.; but is said, by others, to have been founded, in 1260, by Isabella, Countess of Warwick, who became one of its nuns. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Worcester. Value: £850. Patron: the Earl of Abergavenny. The church is decorated and later English; was repaired in 1841; has a tower; and contains a canopied effigies of John Savage, Esq., of 1631. There are chapels for Baptists and Methodists, a national school, and church and poors lands yielding £80 a year."
