Ingham is a small village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. It lies close to the village of Stalham, and is about 2 miles from Sea Palling on the North Sea coast.[1]

The civil parish has an area of 6.13 km2 (2.37 sq mi) and in the 2001 census had a population of 376 in 153 households. For the purposes of local government, the parish falls within the district of North Norfolk.[2]

Ingham is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 were it has the name of Hincham.[3] Possible etymologies are "homestead or village of a man called Inga" or "home of the Inguiones" (an ancient Germanic tribe). Oliver Ingham lived here and his son-in-law Miles Stapleton of Bedale, Yorkshire, inherited jure uxoris.

There are the remains of a priory and the Ingham Poor's Allotment.


The village has one public house which is called the Swan. It is one of only two Public houses tied to the Woodforde’s Brewery of Woodbastwick in Norfolk.[4] The Original Building was built in the 14th Century and was originally part of Ingham Priory until its destruction under Henry VIII in the 16th Century. In spring 2010 Chef Daniel Smith and business partner Gregory Adjemian took ownership of the Swan, renaming it to The Ingham Swan as to avoid confusion with The Swan in the local town of Stalham. The building has had much interior renovation, and now runs a website ( and email list.
