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

"INGOE, a township in Stamfordham parish, Northumberland; 9¼ miles NE by N of Hexham. Acres: 2,165. Population: 243. Houses: 49. The manor belongs to the Duke of Northumberland. Ingoe Hall is a chief residence. There is a Primitive Methodist chapel."

In 1955 the civil parish was abolished and most of the area was transferred to the new civil parish of Matfen. The remainder of the area was absorbed into Belsay at the same time. (Source: A Vision of Britain through Time)
