NORWICH, a city and county of itself, locally in the hundred of Humbleyard, E. division of Norfolk, of which it is the capital, 108 miles (N. E. by N.) from London; containing 62,344 inhabitants. This ancient city rose from the ruins of the Venta Icenorum of the Romans, so named from the river Wentsum or Wensum, and the site of which is now occupied by the village of Caistor, a little to the south. By the Britons, in allusion to that circumstance, it was called Caer Gwent; and by the Saxons, in reference to its situation with respect to the Roman station, Northwic, or the northern castle, of which its present name is an evident contraction.

The following is a complete list of Norwich City parishes, chapels and district churches which lay within the boundary of Holy Trinity Cathedral, Norwich:
