Bredfield Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Bredefelda, or Bredefeld

This property came to the Willoughbys, as part of the estate of the De Ufford family; and in the latter part of the seventeenth century, it was the estate of the Marryotts, one of whom built the Hall here: it passed to the Jenneys, by their marriage with an heiress of the Marryott family.

The Crown hath presented to this vicarage since the dissolution of Monasteries; it having previously belonged to the Priory of Butley and Campsey, who presented alternately to the vicarage, and divided the impropriation.

The family of Jenney are of French extraction, and were early seated at Knodishall, in Blithing hundred. They became possessed of this properly in 1683, by the marriage of Edmund, second son of Sir Robert Jenney, of that parish, Knt., with Dorothy, daughter and co-heiress of Robert Marryott, Esq., of Bredfield.

The present representative of this ancient house, and proprietor of the estate, is Edmund, eldest son and heir of the late Edmund Jenney, of this parish, Esq., and Anne his wife, daughter of Philip Broke, Esq., of Nacton, in this county.

Mr. Jenney succeeded to this property upon the decease of his father, in 1801, and resides at Hasketon, near Woodbridge. Bredfield House, the family seat here, is at present in the occupation of Frederick Manning, Esq.

CHARITIES. The town land here is copyhold of the manor of Bredfield, and consists of six acres, in four pieces, let at rents amounting together to .7 10s. per annum; which is applied to the same purpose as the money raised by a church rate.
