F. White & Co’s Directory of Derbyshire 1846

Ingleby, a township and small scattered village, situated at the foot of a small sandy cliff, on the south bank, and overlooking the vale of the Trent, 7 miles south from Derby, contains 855A, 3R, 33P of sandy land, including 98 acres, of woods, 27 houses, and 149 inhabitants, of whom 68 were males and 81 females; rateable value, £1,326.10s.  Sir Robert Burdett is sole owner. Ingleby Hill House, a neat modern mansion, on a lofty eminence 7 1/2 miles S.W. Derby, is the seat of Sampson Massey, Esq. In the village is a remarkable Elm tree said to be upwards of 600 years old, but is now fast decaying. Feast, Sunday before old Michaelmas day.

Charities – Mary Burdett, by will, in 1697, desired that her executor, Sir Robert Burdett, and his heirs, should dispose of £10 yearly until he or they should lay out the sum of £200, so that the interest or profit thereof might yearly be disposed of to the poor of Foremark, Ingleby, Milton or Repton, or any of them, in clothing poor women, distributing bread on Sundays, schooling of girls, buying Bibles and Common Prayer Books, or in such other way as they should think to be the greatest charity.

Dorothy Burdett, in 1717, desired that her brothers, and, after their decease, that her kinsman, Sir Robert Burdett, and his heirs, should dispose of £10 yearly out of the rents of Hogs Hill Farm, until he or they should lay out the sum of £200, so that the yearly interest or profit thereof might be laid out or disposed of to the poor of Foremark, Ingleby, Repton, Milton (a hamlet in Repton), and Ticknall.  The above sums have never been laid out in pursuance of the above Will.  Sir Francis Burdett, is the owner of Hogs Hill farm, and under the direction of his agent a quantity of beef and clothing, to a much greater amount than the interest, is provided annually at Christmas, and the poor of several places interested, with the respective overseers, attend at Foremark Hall, where the meat and clothing are distributed.
