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

The manor belongs to the Massingberg family. The coast has a small headland, called Ingoldmells Point, and presents objects of interest to naturalists. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Lincoln. Value, £182. * Patron, the Rev. J. Dodsworth. The church lost its chancel about the year 1706; has a transitional Norman nave, of six bays; was greatly improved in 1865; and contains some oak stalls, an octagonal font, and a curious brass of 1520. A handsome rectory house was lately built. There are a Primitive Methodist chapel, and recently erected schools.
