Hundon

"HUNDON, a parish in the hundred of Risbridge, county Suffolk, 3 miles N.W. of Clare, and 7 from Haverhill, its post town. It is situated on a branch of the river Stour. The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Ely, value £201, in the patronage of Jesus College, Cambridge. The church, dedicated to All Saints, is an ancient structure, with a tower containing six bells. The interior of the church has lately been restored. In an adjoining building is a pyramidal monument to the memory of Arethusa, wife of James Vernon, Esq., and daughter of Lord Clifford. The register commences in 1642. The charities produce about £200 per annum, arising from 113 acres of land, left for the repairs of the church and the benefit of the poor. A variety of Saxon coins of Athelstane, &c., were found whilst digging a grave in 1687. Lady Harland is the proprietress of the manor. A fair for pedlery is held on Holy Thursday."
