"WINGFIELD, a parish in the hundred of Hoxne, county Suffolk, 3 miles N. of Stradbroke, and 6 N.E. of Eye. It is situated on a branch of the river Waveney, and has the remains of a castle or moated seat of the De la Poles, built by Michael, first Earl of Suffolk, in the reign of Richard II., and of a college or priory founded in 1362 for a provost and nine priests. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Norwich, value £100, in the patronage of the bishop. The church, dedicated to St. Andrew, was made collegiate in 1362, and has some remains of ancient stained glass in the chancel, an old font, and monuments to the De la Poles, Earls of Suffolk; but the monumental brasses to the ancient family of Wingfield, who once possessed the manor, have all disappeared. There is a good schoolhouse in the churchyard."
