"SAXSTEAD, a parish in the hundred of Hoxne, county Suffolk, 3 miles N.W. of Framlingham, its post town, and 13 N. of Woodbridge. The village, which is small and straggling, is situated on the river Alde, and is chiefly agricultural. The land is partly in common. The parish contains the hamlet of Saxstead Green. The tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of £340. The living is a curacy annexed to the rectory* of Framlingham, in the diocese of Norwich. The church is dedicated to All Saints. The steeple fell down in 1806, and has not been rebuilt. The parochial charities consist of a house and some land bequeathed for the benefit of the poor."
