In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Intwood like this:
INTWOOD, a parish in Henstead district, Norfolk; adjacent to the Brandon railway, 1¾ mile E of Hethersett r. station, and 3 ½ SW of Norwich. Post town, Norwich. Acres, 617. Real property, £804. Pop., 68. Houses, 16. The manor was given by the Conqueror to Eudo Dapifer; belonged, in the time of Elizabeth, to Sir Thomas Gresham, the founder of the Royal Exchange; passed to the Hobarts; and belongs now to Hudson Gurney, Esq. Intwood Hall is chiefly a modern mansion; but it retains portions of the old hall of the Greshams, with their armorial bearings; and that hall gave entertainment, in 1549, to the Earl of Warwick, when on his march against the Norfolk rebels. ...
The living is a rectory, united with the rectory of Keswick, in the diocese of Norwich. Value, £350.* Patron, J. S. Muskett, Esq. The church is ancient but good; and has a round tower, surmounted by an octagonal lantern.
