Corton

"CORTON, a parish in the hundred of Mutford, in the county of Suffolk, 2 miles N. of Lowestoft, and 6 S. of Yarmouth. The village commands a fine view of the sea, and is a coastguard station. The sea is gradually encroaching upon the cliffs, and has swept away an entire parish, called Newton. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Norwich, value £119, in the patronage of the lord chancellor. The church, dedicated to St. Bartholomew, was once a spacious structure, but only the chancel and tower are now remaining, besides a part of the nave restored by the present vicar. The charities amount to £18 per annum. Bones of the mammoth, and other geological specimens, have been found here. Sir Francis Crossley, Bart., is lord of the manor."
