Primary tabs

"GREAT and LITTLE WENHAM, two parishes in the incorporation and hundred of Samford, county Suffolk, 4½ miles S.E. of Hadleigh, and 8 S.W. of Ipswich. At Little Wenham the old seat of the Brewes family, which affords the earliest example of the use of Flemish brick extant, is now converted into a granary. The living of Great Wenham is a rectory,* value £250, in the patronage of the Bishop of Norwich, and that of Little Wenham, also a rectory, consolidated with that of Capel St. Mary. The church of the former parish, dedicated to St. John, has a brass, double canopied, and the latter, an ancient structure of the 13th century, contains memorials of the Brewes family. The registers date respectively from 1643 and 1558.
