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

"FUNDENHALL, a parish in Depwade [registration] district, Norfolk; 2½ miles NW of Forncett [railway] station, and 4¼ SE of Wymondham. Post town: Tacolnestone, under Wymondham. Acres: 1,347. Real property: £2,709. Population: 334. Houses: 65. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Norwich. Value: not reported. Patron: T. T. Berney, Esq. The church is ancient, and has a tower. Charities, £9."

Fundenhall was absorbed into the parish of Ashwellthorpe in 1935. In 2003 the parish was renamed Ashwellthorpe and Fundenhall. Both parishes and then the combined parish were in Depwade Rural District from 1894 until 1974 and then in the South Norfolk District.
