(See Gunton, page 757.) The ancient Hall was converted into a farm-house by the late Lord Suffield, who built a neat School here, which has a small endowment for 16 poor children, left by a former Lady Suffield. The CHURCH (St. Margaret,) has a square tower, and the benefice is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £14, and now having 8A. 3R. 32P. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £352. 10s., awarded in 1841, in lieu of tithes. It is in the gift of Lord Suffield, and incumbency of the Rev. Chas. Heath, together with Gunton and Hanworth.
