"PETTISTREE, a parish in the hundred of Wilford, county Suffolk, 1 mile S.W. of Wickham-Market, its post town, and 4 miles S.E. of Woodbridge. The village, which is of small extent, is situated near the river Deben, and is wholly agricultural. The parish comprises the hamlet of Bing, which appears once to have been of considerable importance, as a claim was made in the 14th of Edward I. of a right to hold a market every Thursday. The impropriate tithes belonging to the Blue-coat School at Ipswich have been commuted for a rent-charge of £220, and the vicarial for one of £96 10s., with 1 acre of glebe. The living is a vicarage annexed with that of Lowdham, in the diocese of Norwich. The church, dedicated to SS. Peter and Paul, is an ancient flint edifice. The interior contains a brass of F. Bacon, bearing date 1580. The parochial charities produce about £5 per annum. Lowdham Hall was formerly the seat of a family of the same name."
