"HUNTINGFIELD, a parish in the hundred of Blything, county Suffolk, 4½ miles S.W. of Halesworth, its railway station and post town, and 24 N. of Ipswich. The village is small, and the inhabitants are chiefly engaged in agriculture. The land is arable, and the soil heavy clay. At Huntingfield Hall in this parish Queen Elizabeth was entertained in great state by Lord Hunsden, and the oak from which the queen is said to have shot a buck with her own hand is still standing. The living is a rectory* with that of Cookley annexed, in the diocese of Norwich, value £1,054. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, is an ancient structure, with a tower. The parochial charities produce about £50 per annum, chiefly the produce of the town lands; £40 of this sum is applied to the repairs of the church, and the remainder to school purposes. The register dates from 1539. Lord Huntingfield is lord of the manor, and takes from this place the title of baron."
