Sudbury All Saints, Suffolk Genealogy
Parish History[edit | edit source]
"SUDBURY, a parish, market town, and municipal borough, chiefly in the hundred of Babergh, county Suffolk, but including the parish of Ballingdon-cum-Brundon, county Essex, 20 miles S.W. of Ipswich, and 7 S.E. of Clare. The Reform bounds include the old borough, containing the parishes of All Saints, St. Gregory, and St. Peter, with the extra-parochial district of St. Bartholomew's, and the [former] parish of Ballingdon, in Essex. Ballingdon was formerly a parish, in the union of Sudbury, hundred of Hinckford, N. division of Essex, ½ a mile(S.W. by W.) from Sudbury. After the decay of the parochial church, the village of Ballingdon, which had been previously only a chapelry in the parish of Brundon, became the head of the parish. The inhabitants resort to the church of All Saints, Sudbury, and contribute towards the church-rate of that parish.
Sudbury is also the capital of the archdeaconry and deanery to which it gives name in the diocese of Norwich. The livings are, All Saints, a vicarage* with that ofBallingdon-cum-Brundon annexed; and the perpetual curacy of St. Gregory, with that of St. Peter annexed. The churches are of considerable antiquity. St. Gregory's, the most ancient, was collegiate until Henry VIII. sold its possessions. St. Bartholomew's was the site of a Benedictine priory. The site latterly became the property of Sir J. Marriott, by whose order the priory-buildings were taken down in 1779.
