A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Rushall from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "RUSHALL, a parish in Depwade [registration] district, Norfolk; 3 miles W of Harleston [railway] station. Post-town: Dickle-burgh, under Scole. Acres: 1,170. Real property: £2,011. Population: 242. Houses: 54. The property is much subdivided. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Norwich. Value: £143. Patron: the Rev. R. Cooper. The church is good. Charities, £10."
In 1974, as part of the nationwide reorganization of municipalities, Rushall joined forces with the neighbouring parish of Dickleburgh to become Dickleburgh and Rushall parish in the South Norfolk District of Norfolk. Rushall is about 6 miles E.N.E. of Diss.
