Inworth  Essex


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Inworth like this:

INWORTH, a village and a parish in Witham district, Essex. The village stands on a rising ground, 1½ mile SE of Kelvedon r. station, and 5 NE of Witham. The parish comprises 1, 554 acres; and its post town is Kelvedon. Real property, £2, 554. Pop. in 1851, 717; in 1861, 655. Houses, 146. ...

The decrease of pop. was caused by the closing of a silk factory. The property is much subdivided. The manor belongs to J. H. Blood, Esq. Inworth Hall is now merely a modern farm house. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Rochester. Value, £306. Patron, T. Poynder, Esq. The church is ancient but good; has a wooden belfry: is partly built with Roman bricks; and contains remains of a Roman tessellated pavement, and a piscina. There is a national school.
