Bealings Parva Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Bealings Parva, or Parua Belinges

The advowson of Little Bealings belonged to Thetford Priory; and at the dissolution, 32nd Henry VIII., was granted to Thomas Duke of Norfolk, who sold it to the Seckford family.

The village and its picturesque valley were little known, and seldom noticed, until Perry Nursey, Esq., began to improve his estate, and laid out the grounds in the best style of ornamental planting.

This property, called "The Grove," Mr. Nursey sold, about the year 1824, to James Colvin, Esq., an active East India director; who has expended large sums in further improving the grounds, making other purchases of land, and in erecting the greater part of the present mansion, in addition to the original house.

In 1372, John de Iselford was rector of this church, and exchanged with Richard Ugman for the rectory of Moulton Parva, in Norfolk. At that period the prior of the Cluniac Monastery, at Thetford, was patron of this church.
