"CARLTON CUM WILLINGHAM, a parish in the hundred of Radfield, in the county of Cambridge, 8 miles to the south of Newmarket, its post town, and 5 miles south-east from the Six-mile Bottom and Dullingham stations, both on the Cambridge and Newmarket railway. It is situated in a beautiful country on the border of Suffolk. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Ely, of the value with the perpetual curacy of Willingham annexed, of £287, in the patronage of the trustees of the late Rev. W. S. P. Wilder. The church, which is a small ancient building, is dedicated to St. Peter, and contains a monument to Sir Thomas Elliott, who died in 1546. The parochial charities are of small value, and there is an infants' school with an endowment of £3 per annum. The Primitive Methodists have a small chapel here. Lord Dacre is lord of the manor.
